Most of us want to make a difference. We see suffering, injustice and death, and are moved to do something about them. But working out what that ‘something’ is, let alone actually doing it, can be a difficult and disheartening challenge. Effective altruism is a response to this challenge. It is a research field which uses high-quality evidence and careful reasoning to work out how to help others as much as possible. 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.
Effective Altruism (EA) Manchester is a part of the EA Global community and is made up of both the student society (for University Of Manchester students) and the city society (for professionals living in the city). Our aim is to provide a friendly environment to learn more about EA, discuss different cause areas, and find out how each of us can maximise our positive impact.
