Effective altruism is a growing social movement, which asks ‘of all the possible ways to make a difference, which will make the most difference?’
With so many problems in the world, effective altruism encourages people to use evidence and reason to prioritize their altruistic efforts in order to maximise the social outcome.
In this Liberty Lecture, Executive Director of the Centre for Effective Altruism Robert Wiblin will explain what it means to be an effective altruist, how its possible to calculate the effectiveness of altruistic actions, and how these insights can be applied from a classical liberal perspective.
Robert studied genetics and economics at the Australian National University, and worked as a research economist in the Australian Government before joining the Centre for Effective Altruism. He was named a ‘Young Global Shaper’ by the World Economic Forum, and sits on the board of Animal Charity Evaluators.
