About Us


Do you want to do make a difference in the world, but aren’t really sure where to start? The Effective Altruism Society can help you on your journey!

The effective altruism movement is all about doing the most good we can do, by using evidence and rationality to discover the best ways to help the world. We focus on many different cause areas, including (but not limited to) global poverty, animal welfare, and existential risk.

The Effective Altruism (EA) Society is an Exeter-based community of people who believe in the core EA values of helping the world, rationality, and optimisation. The society acts as a platform for EA-focused discussion. We aspire to learn how we can use our resources, careers, and free time to help the world as much as possible, and put this knowledge into practice. We hold weekly discussion sessions, which are open to anyone and everyone, and are cultivating a rich community of people who are passionate about doing good.

Aims of the Society:

  • Promoting the use of evidence and reason to rethink our altruistic actions, and improve the way we act.
  • Encouraging students to seek to have a social impact with their careers, and helping them compare the potential of different careers.
  • Challenging ourselves to rethink what we consider to be right and wrong, improve our beliefs and the way we think.
