What questions do you have about making a difference?

How can you best use your time to make a difference? What do you want to know about how to do good?

80,000 Hours now has several people working full time on research, and they would like your questions!

We’re happy to consider any questions about how to effectively make a difference, in whatever sphere of your life – volunteering, career or philanthropy. These questions could be at the conceptual or ethical level, or they could concern nitty-gritty practicalities.

We’re particularly interested in questions that are not already well addressed by other groups.

The most popular questions will receive the attention of our research team, and their findings will feature in our new careers guide. Either post your questions below, or send them to
