About Effective Altruism Belgium

Effective Altruism Belgium is a Belgian non-profit organization and the umbrella organization of all Belgian effective altruism groups. Effective altruism is a philosophy and social movement that applies evidence and reason to determine the most effective ways to improve the world. Effective altruists aim to consider all causes and actions, and then act in the way that brings about the greatest positive impact. It is this broad evidence-based approach that distinguishes effective altruism from traditional altruism or charity. While a substantial proportion of effective altruists have focused on the nonprofit sector, the philosophy of effective altruism applies much more broadly, e.g., to prioritizing the scientific projects, companies, and policy initiatives which can be estimated to save and improve the most lives.

Some of our activities include:

  • giving lectures and workshops on effective altruism and related topics,

  • giving advice on effective charities, volunteer work, high-impact ethical careers, campaigns and policies

  • organizing events and conferences on effective altruism,

  • examining important measures to improve the world,

  • raising funds for national and international effective altruistic organizations.
