CEA is excited to announce that EAGxMars will take place in October 2040. We look forward to welcoming ambitious members of the community for a weekend of talks, networking and civilisation-building on this relatively nearby planet.
Applications will open in 2030 to give attendees sufficient time to make their journeys physically possible. We will make a slack channel to help people coordinate on this.
Who is EAGxMars for?
EAGxMars will be a locally-organised conference designed primarily for people:
- Familiar with the core ideas of effective altruism;
- Interested in learning more about what to do;
- Who can get to Mars.
What’s the difference between a “normal” EAGx and EAGxMars?
The target audience is different - EAGx events are for people comfortable with planes, trains and other parochial modes of transportation. EAGxMars is for people who are ambitious.
How much are tickets? Is there financial aid?
We will offer discounts and financial support to make sure that cost is not prohibitive for anyone. The whole thing is probably prohibitive enough as it is.
Will I need a visa?
Precise dates TBC. These kinds of details aren’t top of mind for us at present.
It’s possible that attendees will plan on staying for longer than a weekend, given the journey. We might organise some retreats around the event.
