Now in its 6th year, EAGxAustralia is a sell-out conference for the effective altruism community in Australia and Oceania. Our events have been helping people to do good better since 2015: whether through their careers, donations, or other aspects of their lives.

While COVID prevented us from holding a conference in 2020/2021, we’re thrilled to announce the return of EAGxAustralia in 2022. This will be a fantastic opportunity to:

  • Connect and reconnect with like-minded, altruistic people
  • Give and receive feedback on career, study, or donation plans, or on your EA projects
  • Learn more about the latest ideas with effective altruism, through a range of talks and workshops
  • Coordinate on global and local projects with experts in creating impact

Plans for the conference are still underway, so please follow us on Facebook or sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date with news and announcements, including the launch of ticket sales.

Who is the conference for?

The conference is designed for people who are already familiar with the core ideas of effective altruism and who want to engage more deeply with those ideas by getting more involved with the community. We aim for the conference to increase attendees’ knowledge and skills and expand their networks, with the ultimate goal of helping them do as much good as possible. For those new to effective altruism, we highly encourage you to check out this introductory article and attend your local EA chapter’s events before the conference.

How do I register?

Registrations haven’t opened yet, as plans for the conference are still underway. To be notified when tickets go on sale, please follow us on Facebook and sign up for our mailing list.

What is effective altruism?

Effective altruism is about answering one simple question: how can we use our resources to help others the most? Rather than just follow intuitions, we believe that we should use evidence and careful analysis to find the most important causes and the best ways to work on them. Find out more here.
