In addition to our informal monthly Effective Altruism meetups we will hold reading and discussion meetings every two months. During these meetings we will read and discuss articles or books that are about Effective Altruism or topics that are related to it. Effective Altruism consists in the honest and impartial attempt to find out how to do the most amount of good with our available time and resources by applying rational reasoning, data and scientific evidence. Effective Altruism covers alot of different themes and domains that concern effectively helping others, be it in the short-term or the longer run. If you want to delph deeper into the question on doing good better, you're more than welcome to join these twomonthly meetings.

For the first meetings we will look into cause prioritization and careerchoice. What causes in the world are most pressing? Which are most dire? And how can you use your career to do the most good as possible? In an attempt to adress these questions, the organization 80.000 hours does research and advices on with what careers you can do the most good. During the first meeting we will discuss a part of their careeradvice, namely the one on world's most pressing problems and how to use your career in order to work on them.
