We want to help build a community of exceptionally committed people who engange in depth with the questions posed by effective altruism.

Outreach. We offer video calls for members of the community who are interested in reducing s-risks or want to explore considerations for cause prioritization for the long-term future more generally. For people interested in reducing s-risks, we also offer help with career planning.

Communications. We maintain the website effektiveraltruismus.de as an introductory resource and guide to the German EA community. In the media, we seek to accurately represent effective altruism and portray its ideas with appropriate nuance.

Local groups. Complementing the work of the Centre for Effective Altruism and LEAN, we provide some support for EA local groups in German-speaking countries. To build a shared understanding of the goals and strategies for local groups, we run an annual retreat for local group organizers and have compiled an overview of the most important resources around community building. In A Concrete Model for Running an EA Group, we’ve summarised our advice for local group goals and activities.
