Re­think Priorities

TagLast edit: 8 Dec 2022 13:15 UTC by Janique

Rethink Priorities is a think tank dedicated to informing decisions made by high-impact organisations and funders . We work across various cause areas such as longtermism (including forecasting, AI governance, and nuclear risks), building effective altruism, animal welfare (for both farmed and wild animals), and global health and development.
