I’ve ran sessions with high school students on the ethics of giving to charity, and on the importance of individual action in solving large-scale problems, and on whether individual citizens are culpable for what their states do. I spoke to the Port Macquarie Philosophy Forum about citizens’ responsibility for their states’ actions in October 2019. I spoke to Melbourne’s Lyceum Club about the same topic in September 2020. If you run a philosophy club or community group, feel free to get in touch.
Perhaps the most fun public engagement activity I’ve done was called “Stand-Up Philosophy”, in which two comedians and two philosophers each gave twenty-minute talks on the topic of “Effective Altruism.” You can check out my talk on YouTube.
