7pm: Talks + Q&A:
- Julia Wise from The Centre for Effective Altruism will tell her personal story of trying to do good in the world and the journey she’s taken while trying to do the most good she can with her life.
- Then we will have four fantastic speakers, each pitching a promising way of doing good:
– Michael Faye, GiveDirectly, Founder: introduces cash transfers as an effective way of directly helping those most in need.
– Michael Plant, Happier Lives Institute, Founder: makes the case for directly measuring and optimising for happiness and mental health interventions as a promising path to improving lives.
