Many online EA events have been organised to keep our community learning and connected during this period of physical distancing. While online events don’t provide the same experience as in-person meetups, they have the advantage of breaking down geographical barriers, opening up the possibility for new collaborations and connections. So I encourage you to get involved!
Ways to discover online EA-related events:
- The international EA events calendar, curated by several community members, lists high-quality speaker events and large social events suitable for anyone interested in EA. To add an event, fill out this form. If you notice an error in the calendar please email email@example.com.
- For a wider range of online events, check out the EA online events Facebook group.
- Special interest events are being run by some groups based on interest areas, affiliations, or professions.
- Join your nearest local EA group to attend events they may be running.
And if you are running online events yourself, here’s a collaborative rough guide to running virtual events.
Hey Catherine, can you add EA Anywhere to this post?
This post is being linked on EA UK's get involved page, and I'm adding it to the EA Austin page too (kinda copying theirs), so some people will still see it. Any other ways this post might be out of date would be worth tweaking too :)
The international events calendar is a great idea! Really like you can add it to your google calendar and so easily see something of interest coming up.
Is there a way to report events being at the wrong time to it? The international icebreakers look from Facebook like they've changed time, but haven't been moved in the calendar.
Is that because Facebook is GMT, and the UK is GMT+1?
Thanks for flagging this Michelle, I've updated the Icebreaker event for this week it will the Europe event on Wednesday evenings has been changed from 8pm GMT (London) to 6pm GMT to account for people in Europe in slightly later timezones like the Middle East.
If anyone has future errors to report, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll get this information added in the relevant places.
