Reading Group: The Long-Term Consequences of Biological Risks

  • The Berkeley REACH 3045 Shattuck Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94705 United States (map)

This month we will be doing readings on the long-term consequences of biological risks:

Existential risk and cost-effective biosecurity: https://www.liebertpub.com/doi/pdf/10.1089/hs.2017.0028

Long-term trajectories of human civilization: http://gcrinstitute.org/papers/trajectories.pdf

Reducing the risk of human extinction: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1I0PFj_L1X2WWS_KfTu3TuXjr0eXCNg8n/view

This takes place at REACH, the rationalist and effective altruism community hub. No need to call anyone to get in, just come to the front door and knock. This event is open to both people familiar with and new to thinking about biosecurity. It is baby-in-arms friendly, but not child-friendly.
