Join us in Canberra for EAGxAustralia 2022
Applications are now open for EAGxAustralia, which is being held at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, from July 8th-10th.
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 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. We’re lining up a range of speakers from around the world, including experts on global health and poverty, AI safety, animal welfare, and climate change. The programme will also include workshops, meetups, and plenty of time for networking and socialising.
Further Info & FAQs
Who is the conference for?
EAGxAustralia is aimed at people with an understanding of the core ideas of effective altruism. E.g. people who have completed an introductory course, or who have engaged with more than 20 hours of effective altruism related content. We would encourage all people described here to apply. If you’re unsure about whether to apply, err on the side of applying.
You’ll need to apply to attend EAGxAustralia— once accepted, you’ll be able to purchase your ticket. If you’ve attended an EAGx conference in the past, most of the fields can be prepopulated with your responses from previous applications if you log in at the start.
We strongly recommend that you take the time to thoroughly fill out the application, as the information you provide will also be used to help you make the most out of the conference. Applications close June 24th, two weeks before the conference, though we strongly encourage people to apply as soon as they can.
You’ll be able to apply for financial assistance for your travel expenses in the application form. Please do apply for support if the cost of attending would be prohibitive for you.
If you’re accepted to the conference and need a visa, we recommend you check if you could be eligible for a “Temporary Activity Visa”. (Though this is not legal advice— we strongly encourage attendees to research for themselves whether they need a visa and which visa is best.) In most cases we can provide a signed letter of invitation to support a visa application.
Our current COVID-19 policy is viewable here. The most important point to note is that we are requiring attenedees to be fully vaccinated, including a booster dose if eligible.
