Come to the Jaarbeurs in the centre of the bustling city of Utrecht for a conference on doing good as effectively as possible, based on effective altruism.

For whom?

If you are unsure whether to participate, we suggest to apply anyway!

EAGxUtrecht is intended for both newcomers and experienced members of the EA movement. We are looking for people who are willing to:

  • Engage deeply with the principles of effective altruism (prioritisation, impartial altruism, open truthseeking, and collaborative spirit).
  • Learn from leaders in the field about how to excel in achieving impact.
  • Connect with a community that shares your passion for change.
  • Start or join initiatives that aim to tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

We give priority to applicants from the Netherlands and parts of Western Europe that do not yet have their own EAGx conference. But we also want to connect participants with effective altruists from around the world, so we encourage people from further afield to apply as well!

For those new to effective altruism, we prioritize applicants who are engaged in the movement, as evidenced by concrete plans for positive impact, completion of relevant programs or study of relevant literature.
