EATO’s Why, How, and What

Slides for Meta-Meeting 2019 03 18

Why:

The effective altruism (EA) community is “a global community of people who care deeply about the world, make benefiting others a significant part of their lives, and use evidence and reason to figure out how best to do so”

  • Principles form the basis of our culture and community.
  • Currently, these are the principles: commitment to others, scientific mindset, openness, integrity, collaborative spirit.
  • The mission of our community is to bring to life these principles, more deeply and widely.
  • Through pursuing our mission, we grow the EA movement, network, and community.

How:

When we say we want to benefit others, we mean every sentient being. To do that well, we need a global community that’s more representative of the wider population and can offer a diversity of perspectives and worldviews.
