(this meetup will be held in English)

After an introduction to Effective Altruism, we will take on the topic of Global Health. From 19-21 we will have a presentation, followed by a guided discussion. We will talk about priorities, misconceptions, and take action!

Through an Effective Altruism (EA) lens, we will discuss what is being done in Global Health (e.g. Malaria bed nets, deworming), what misconceptions there are (e.g. giving doesn't help, I can't have an impact), and together work on a framework to make better decisions of what YOU can do for global health!

Wednesday 1 May, 19-21.00, V2_ (Eendrachtsstraat 10)
