Who is EA Cambridge?


We're a group of people, primarily based in the Cambridge UK region, who try to think hard about how to help others the most, and what actions we can take with our careers, donations and political choices to enact these changes. Many members of the community currently study at or have graduated from the University of Cambridge, although we also have community members who've studied at other universities and in other countries, or are working in Cambridgeshire.


Learn more about some of our team here.


What are some of our focus areas?


We focus on a wide range of different cause areas and global issues, with a particular focus on global catastrophic risks, animal welfare, and global health and poverty.
