There are lots of important project ideas in EA that people could work on, and I’d like to encourage people to explore more. When I was looking for projects to work on, I had difficulty thinking of what needed doing apart from obvious projects like raising money for GiveWell-recommended charities. I even had a sense that all the organisations that needed to exist existed, which is obviously not correct.

 

Fortunately many people have put together project ideas in important cause areas:

 

 

This is far from exhaustive, but it’s a start.

 

However, it’s not clear whether lack of ideas is actually what’s stopping people from working on new projects. So I’d be interested to know:

 

  • What’s blocking you from working on an altruistic project?

  • Are there resources which the community could provide that would help?

  • Do you have any more project ideas or lists of project ideas to add? - I'll keep this list updated with what I find.
