Designing Your Life When Strangers Are Drowning

June 3, 2020 at 6:30pm PST / 9:30pm EST

Join us for a virtual fireside chat with Dave Evans and Larissa MacFarquhar on what matters to us and what to do about it. In this age of a global pandemic when many lives around us are facing suffering and helplessness, how do we decide what matters and what to orient our lives around? Dave Evans, the co-creator of Designing Your Life course at Stanford, and Larissa MacFarquhar, the author of Strangers Drowning and staff writer for The New Yorker will discuss the important questions around the connections between altruism, values, and making life choices. This event is co-hosted by Veritas at Stanford and Stanford Effective Altruism, and will be moderated by two students from each group.
