Effective altruism is a philosophy and social movement that uses reason and evidence to find the most effective ways of improving the world. By carefully considering what we value and working together to pursue it, we can do an amazing amount of good.
Effective altruists aim to consider all causes and actions, and then act in the way that brings about the greatest positive impact: whether that be through their donations, their volunteer work, or their careers.
