Effective Altruism

Effective Altruism (EA) is a philosophy and social movement that is focused on doing good, better. What does it mean to do good? And, how can we improve how we do good so that we help the most people? These are questions that are core to the EA movement.

Yet Effective Altruism is not an abstract philosophy. Thousands of people around the world have been using EA ideas to help others. Many use EA ideas to optimise their donations to charity or inform their research agenda. Others work at organisations that use evidence and reason to deal directly with the world's most pressing problems.
