WHAT IS EFFECTIVE ALTRUISM?
At Yale Effective Altruism, our mission revolves around question: how can we use our resources to help others and do the most good? We are driven to solve the largest problems that humanity faces today—whether it be global health, extreme poverty, animal welfare, engineered pandemics, AI Risk, nuclear security, climate change, or other existential and global catastrophic risks—through research, public policy, ethics, charity entrepreneurship, philanthropy, direct work, and the many other resources, opportunities and privileges at our disposal.
