How I can help others

I can help with 
- community on-boarding to the suffering abolitionist community (= talk to/ socialize with anyone who is interested)  and 
- orientation/reflection on suffering abolitionist careers or project opportunities. 
I am also open to general (project) feedback exchange and any other kind of collaboration, really, if it matches somehow.

As preparation this time, I encourage people to develop a Suffering Abolitionists Project Prize proposal for e.g. XPRIZE (deadline 05 May 2024)

  4. Describe what the winning team must do to win your proposed prize.
  5. Describe the competition format and provide any specific judging criteria. Eg Staged down select, a first to achieve, head to head race, best in class, with or without bonus prices...

The link for Gather town (our meet up hall) wasn't updated. I did so now. See as well: https://app.gather.town/app/Yhi4XYj0zFNWuUNv/EA%20coworking%20and%20lounge?spawnToken=6DRLsIP5Gp1C30RP

Sorry, I was way, way off. Oh well. Please just check date converted to your time zone with that link: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Online%20Working%20%2F%20Community%20Meetup%20for%20the%20Abolition%20of%20Suffering&iso=20240406T07&p1=1440&ah=1&am=30 (It only works if your browser has access to your location.)

Hi everyone, again I want to cultivate the habit of using the commenting function (here in the EA Forum, in FB and in Discord) as a motivating accountability tool for sharing what one is working on/ planning to share at the event.

For me, I might talk a little bit about the "Wild Animals in Urban Spaces: How Cities Can Promote Wild Animal Welfare in the Built Environment" talk, and share about my increased engagement in EA Munich and the potentials. Looking forward to seeing you all in about 10,5 hours (if I counted correctly) 🙂

I'm sorry I messed up the time! We start in 35 min!

Hi everyone,

I will be sharing insights from the IARC2023, where I gave a workshop and attended a bunch of stuff. Looking forward to hearing from everyone again :)

I'm afraid I need to cancel today due to health reasons. Feel free to meet up without me.

Hi there, we will meet in about 8 hours online. Please check out the event description for further information. Looking forward to making some progress on projects and ideas :)

FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/163512329953547/

📣 In 12 hours we have our next meetup: 15 October 2022 at 07:00 am **UTC**!

As always, in order for everyone to make the most of the event, please make a commitment to work on a topic of your choice relevant to suffering abolitionism. Our list of initiatives should serve as inspiration. But there is no need to make big commitments. Reading an article is fine too! Note: The more precise you are with what you choose to commit to, the more committed you will feel to actually do it. Even better if you share what you committed yourself to. E.g. as a comment here.

As inspiration for cause areas to work on, check out the following mind maps:

Excited to talk to you soon! 😊
