We are delighted to once again be welcoming Professor Peter Singer who will be giving a talk on 'Effective Altruism: Doing the Most Good We Can.'

Students studying Ethics will no doubt have encountered some of Peter Singer's work and this talk will be an excellent opportunity to build on that knowledge.
