We are a club for students at NYU interested in effective altruism – the philosophy of using evidence and logic to determine how to do the most good.

Effective altruism can be summed up in two steps:

1.    Figure out how to do the most good.

2.   Do it.

In our mission to do the most good, we consider many different cause areas, such as animal welfare, global health, extreme poverty, artificial intelligence risks, and more! We are interested in many high-impact areas, so we will probably hold an event on something you’re interested in. This list covers some of the problems that are considered most important by many effective altruists.

If you’re excited by the idea of achieving real, highly effective change, then you’re in the right place!
