Animal Ethics and Moral Circle Expansion

Lecture Theatre

11:30 am - 11:55 am

Joint

Some effective altruists are compelled by the large numbers of animals suffering on farms and in the wild. Others are compelled by the large numbers of human descendants who could exist in the far future. But what happens if you think both of these are crucial considerations? In this talk, Jacy will examine whether existing EA cause areas make sense with this intersectional view, and he will make a case for a new focus on Moral Circle Expansion.
