EA Geneva's mission is to improve the prospects of a flourishing civilisation. Its main strategy is to foster the use of evidence- and reason-based methods.
In 2015, our organisation sprang out of the global Effective Altruism movement. Founded in Oxford in 2011, the movement attempts to answer the following question:
How can we use our limited resources to do the most good?
To find viable answers, the movement develops expertise in the application of logical reasoning and the scientific method. The outcome is a general methodology to attempt to improve current practices.
EA Geneva’s work is defined as follows:
We help individuals, the philanthropy sector, and the policy sector
to maximise their global impact,
through research, education and support efforts,
using the tools of applied rationality, cause prioritisation and complexity science.
