Effective Altruism

TED talk ‘The why and how of effective altruism’ by Australian ethicist Peter Singer focuses on the ways to be most effective in making a difference in the world – and how everyone can do something.

While some people may find parts of the video a little controversial this makes it even more important to watch as it challenges our own thinking so we can grow and expand.

Singer looks at different ways to be for us all to be philanthropists.  You don’t need to give up your day job and become an aid worker in Africa (although you can if you like).

Just by giving up a few luxuries and living a more modest, but still ample, life you can make a big difference in the world.
