We want to develop, promote, and implement the ideas of effective altruism. As part of this scientific and philosophical community, we strive for a world without extreme suffering, with a focus on ending global poverty, reducing animal suffering, and advocating for a highly cautious approach to developing high-risk technologies. To this end, we implement projects in three areas: research, community, and philanthropy.
