This is the general mailing list for the EA Köln local group. You are very much invited to join if you are near Cologne, Germany and are interested in effective altruism. EA is about changing the way we do good by answering one simple question: how can we use our resources to help others the most? Rather than just doing what feels right, we use evidence and careful analysis to find the very best causes to work on and the right strategies to pursue. For more information about effective altruism, see www.effectivealtruism.org (EN) or effektiveraltruismus.de (DE).
