Revision as of 14:23, 25 October 2016

This is a list of organisations that we might recommend people apply to. We don't necessarily endorse the organisations - one way to improve the world is go to an organisation with problems and improve it.

They do all work on problems we regard at highly pressing.

General sources

Catastrophic risks and artificial intelligence

Development and global health

Public policy

Effective altruism

Animal welfare and factory farming
