Effective Altruism Bern
Global Priorities Reading Club
(Every last Tuesday of the month)
The Global Priorities Reading Club (GPRC) aims at people who already know the basic ideas of EA and want to develop a more nuanced understanding of the concepts and discussions around EA. EA and global priorities research are complex topics with "heavy-tailed" implications. Therefore, a deep and sophisticated understanding of how to do good is very important. For each meeting, we focus on a "topic of the month". At the beginning of each month, some texts and/or podcasts around the topic will be linked in our facebook group. Then, at the GPRC meeting at the end of the month, the topic is openly discussed. Please contact us if you are interested.
Career workshops at high schools and university
The EA career advice organization 80’000 Hours has a wealth of resources based on their research on high-impact careers which are not common knowledge yet. We think that providing this information to people at the transition stage between high school and university has many benefits. Changing one’s career path takes courage and openness, and including EA career knowledge helps to make good decision from the start.
We regularly organise social meetups with the possibility to get to know the EA's from Bern and to talk about EA plans and projects in a cosy environment.
