The Future of Altruism

The University of Melbourne

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The evening will feature a keynote speech by Professor Peter Singer, followed by a panel discussion on ‘The Future of Altruism: Old and New Opportunities for Doing Good.’

We want to do the most good we can, but how should we go about this? Should we focus on searching for novel causes and interventions that we have yet to properly consider? Or should we concentrate on pursuing those interventions already known to be effective? How can we ensure that we stay curious in the search for the best ways to make the world a better place? Featuring a wealth of expertise and experience from across the Effective Altruism movement, this panel will present a range of viewpoints on these and other questions relating to the future of Effective Altruism as a philosophy and a social movement.
