EA for Christians and Virginia Theological Seminary will hold the first-ever academic workshop on Christianity and longtermism: the ethical view that influencing the long-term future of humanity is the top moral priority of our time, or at least among the key moral priorities. This will occur adjacent to EACH's annual conference.

We welcome philosophers, economists, theologians, and interested graduate students to register.
