Discussion article for the meetup : Utrecht: Effective Altruism
In this meetup we will discuss topics related to effective altruism. This meetup is not directly related to the previous one in Utrecht. It is also not purely a LessWrong meetup. We have already created an event on Facebook, where 5 people are planning to attend (I can add you to the event if you comment here). Most of those are also active on LW and we would be more than happy to have more LWers on board.
Some topics we may discuss are altruistic career choice, selection of causes, and whether we can create an effective altruism community in the Netherlands. Getting to know each other is also an important part.
We will meet in a cafĂŠ called De Winkel van Sinkel, which is 400m walking distance from Utrecht Centraal. The meetup will be held in English, since we have at least one German participant..
I will be holding a sign that says 'LW' on it.
