Apart from funding, are there other leverage points you see to move the animal welfare movement as a whole towards higher impact? As an example scenario: early hits causing other organisations to alter their strategy?

AMA: Lewis Bollard, Open Philanthropy

How do you see Open. Phil's focus on farm animal welfare evolving in the coming years vs other focus areas?

AMA: Lewis Bollard, Open Philanthropy

Can you please summarise/suggest top funding opportunities for individual donors by region?

AMA: Lewis Bollard, Open Philanthropy

Are there any specific cases / guidelines where you think it might be better for individual donors to donate to specific animal welfare organisations directly rather than the EA animal welfare fund? (apart from perhaps tax reasons)

What are some meaningful ways in which local groups can contribute to the animal movement?

The Logic of not eating meat

Thanks for sharing this.

  1. One argument I come across is that apart from being symbolic, individual action does not help #1,2 and 3. Elaboration / links to articles that try to quantify the "real" individual effect could probably make the case more persuasive.

  2. If the "real" impact is small then one could argue that the slight inconvenience in following a vegan benifit is comparable to the small benifit that individual action results in.

Young data scientist seeks project ideas

The suggestions below aren't particularly EA-aligned but might interest you. Note that I am not a data scientist and haven't worked with any of them.

  1. seem to work in your area of interest. I don't know if they would offer projects to work on though.

  2. has interesting data for good projects and can be a good place to build a data science portfolio (my partner volunteers for them and is quite satisfied with the experience).

  3. has data for good challenges that might interest you.

Hope this helps.

Can my filmmaking/songwriting skills be used more effectively in EA?

Hello Simon,

I am speculating here, but I can imagine orgs such as Founders Pledge/Effective Giving/Orgs dealing with HNW, UHNW individuals having use for content that succinctly conveys key information. Could be something to explore.

All the best!
