Effective Altruism


LSESU Effective Altruism is a society that is interested in engaging seriously with the ideas of effective altruism and having a high social impact with our careers. As a society, we run regular workshops on how to have a large impact in your career, as well as socials, speaker events, and discussion groups & seminars.

Effective Altruism is about answering one simple question: how can we use our resources to help others the most. It is a research field which uses high-quality evidence and careful reasoning to find the very best causes to work on. But it's no use answering the question unless you act on it. Effective Altruism is about following through. So, it is also a community of people taking these answers seriously, by focusing their efforts on the most promising solutions to the world's most pressing problems.
