Young Woman Talks About Effective Altruism At TEDx

Beth Barnes is a student at Exeter College, and won a competition to speak at TEDxExeter 2015. She describes a system that allows us to direct our resources to what we think will do the most good.

Beth became involved in the Effective Altruism movement last year, and took the Giving What We Can pledge. This year she started Exeter Effective Altruism Society. Next year she hopes to go on to study Biological Natural Sciences at Cambridge, and is currently considering pathways to making a difference and careers such as research into biosecurity, working to combat neglected tropical diseases, or biological software engineering.
