Changing the way we do good in Rotterdam.

We organise local meetups that inspire effective altruism. Through critical thinking, rationality, and compassion, we inspire participants to do the most good with their time and money.

Every second Wednesday of the month we organise engaging meetups that spark new insights about altruism. You will go away with both general knowledge and actionable steps for doing good better.

Effective Altruism Rotterdam is a local chapter of the growing, global Effective Altruism movement.
