We are two 20 years old Finnish students from the University of Helsinki, who are very concerned about global issues. We have a lot of energy and have met a couple of times for organizing our thoughts. We found out about effective altruism and it seems to be exactly the ideology that we want to strive for.
But, on our meetings, we ran into a problem: what is the most effective way to concentrate this energy, so we can advance from talking to taking action? Our agenda and goals seem to be too ambiguous at the moment, so we hope that you could shed some light on what on earth (no pun intended) should we do.
As far as we know, effective altruism hasn't really had a breakthrough in making a cultural change on how people think. The movement in Finland is even more marginal: there are only 30 people in the EA Finland Telegram group and around 10+ people are attending the meetups. As we don't have that much experience in popularizing a social movement, we would need help on how to achieve our goals regarding this project? At least ridding us from the anxious ambiguity of not knowing exactly what concrete things we should do.
P.S. Has there been any research on effective promoting of effective altruism?
