Date and Time
EAGxAustralia is the annual conference for the effective altruism community in Australia and Oceania. Our aim for the conference is to increase attendees' knowledge, skills and networks to help them to achieve as most good as possible.
Effective altruism is about answering one simple question: how can we use our resources to help others the most? Rather than just follow intuitions, we believe that we should use evidence and careful analysis to find the most important causes and the best ways to work on them.
