Have you been thinking about how you can do good better?

Effective Altruism might be your answer. 

What is Effective Altruism?

Effective Altruism is about using our limited resources effectively ⁠— to do the most good that we can. Rather than just follow your intuitions or leave it to chance encounters, use evidence and careful analysis to find the most important causes and the best ways to work on them.

The aim of this year's Doing Good Better conference is to increase your knowledge, skills and networks to help you do the most good possible. We’re bringing together researchers, philanthropists, academics, social impact organisations, corporate professionals and students to engage with addressing some of the world’s most pressing problems.

Find out about the very best causes to work on and identify how you can do good better.

 
 

DISCOVER…

how you can do good better with greater impact through learning about the ideas in Effective Altruism.

OPPORTUNITY…

to meet like-minded individuals and connect with organisations in the Effective Altruism community.

INCREASE…

coordination on global and local projects, building partnerships through this new network in Singapore and the region.
