As an aspiring economist with a passion for data science, I am committed to using data-driven insights to address local and global challenges and promote sustainable development.
Think globally, adapt locally! Effective altruism is all about making a positive impact in the world, and contextualization research is like the salt and pepper that add flavor and make your altruistic endeavors truly delicious! Community builders and EAs from LMICs would definitely love this!
As an organizer of EA Kathmandu University, I particularly found the insights on focusing on cities and attracting a talent pool, as well as the importance of finding early adopters, to be valuable takeaways. It’s great to hear about the unique challenges and opportunities faced by our fellow EA groups in Asia, and I appreciate the emphasis on good over perfect, as there is no one-size-fits-all approach to building EA groups, and we need to be willing to learn and iterate as we go.
