Australia 2022

Join us in Canberra for EAGxAustralia 2022


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’ve lined 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.

Applications for the conference have now closed, but you can still claim a ticket for the Friday night keynote, which kicks off at 7pm. This event is open to the public, including those who are not attending the full weekend conference. You can find further information about the keynote, including instructions on claiming your ticket here. Saturday and Sunday (the 9th and 10th) will feature full-day programmes, with talks and other events running from 9am til 6pm on both days.
