So what is Effective Altruism anyway? What is it that has inspired me to donate 5% of my income to a charity I’ve only just learnt to pronounce, to run a half marathon and to set up an Effective Altruism Brighton Meetups group?
Over the next 3 weeks I will be publishing three articles; Why Effective Altruism? Why Go Vegan? and Why Buy Ethically?
Now that you’ve read how this blog started, I want to give you a bit more detail about the three main areas of ethics I am focusing on and why.
This is the first of that series: Why Effective Altruism?
