Using evidence and reason to figure out how we can do the most good with our careers and resources.
Effective altruism is about answering one simple question: how can we use our resources to help others the most?
Rather than just doing what feels right, we use evidence and careful analysis 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. It's about being generous with your time and your money to do the most good you can.
If you're interested in getting involved, then please check back here closer to the start of next semester, where we will post the application form for our SPEAK mentoring programme and the date of our introduction lecture. You can also like our facebook page, where we will also be posting all of our upcoming events.

University and beyond. We are a charity registered in Scotland and
we are mostly volunteers, from the members of the SRC and SSC to

members to the Trustees of our Board.
