We're excited to officially announce the very first EA UnUnConference! APPLY HERE

Naming What We Can, the most impactful post ever published on April 1st, have already volunteered to host a Q&A. We’re calling in the producers of the TV hit Impact Island, and would like to invite Peter Barnett to launch his new book What The Future Owes Us. The X-risk-Men Incubation Program is running an enlightening talks session. 

Location: Mars in Gathertown

Date: April 1st, 2023, 24 hours and 37 minutes starting at 12:00pm UTC (or “lunch time” for british people)

The case for impact

  • Over the years, humanity realized that Unconferences are a great twist of traditional conferences, since the independence gives room for more unexpected benefits to happen. 
  • For the reason, we’re experimenting with the format of an UnUnconference. This means we’ll actively try not to organize anything, therefore (in expectancy) achieving even more unexpected benefits.
  • We encourage you to critique our (relatively solid, in our opinion) theory of change in the comments!
  • We understand this is not the most ambitious we could be. Although we fall short of the dream of EAGxMars, we believe this Ununconference is a proof-of-concept that will help validate the model of novel, experimental conferences and possibly redefine what impact means for EA events for years to come. 
  • This team is well placed to unorganize this event because we have previously successfully not organized 10^10 possible events. 

What to expect

  • All beings welcomed, that includes infants, face mice, gut microbiome, etc.
  • Expect to have the most impactful time 
  • Make more impact than everyone on earth could ever do combined
  • Network with the best minds in ultra-near-termist research
  • Never meet your connections again after the event
  • Certificates of £20 worth of impact just for £10!
  • No success metrics
  • No theory of change
  • No food, no wine, no suffering
