Do Something Else

The 3rd Fractal Conference

21 – 22 October 2022
Le Meridien Jakarta


It’s been over two years since our last in-person Fractal Asia conference. We are thrilled to organize this conference again— bigger and better than before!

The event will bring together over 200 members of the rationalist community to connect with each other, and to explore the best ways to improve the world. The conference takes place in Jakarta, Indonesia. We invite everyone in Asia-Pacific to join us (and from further abroad too)! If the conference is canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 situation, you will get a full refund on your ticket.

Fractal Conference is organized by a group of volunteers. You can get in contact with us here!

Taking an effective altruism approach


There are so many causes that we can choose to work on. Taking a step back to think about your focus areas can lead you to discover areas you had not considered. These are cause areas that affect a lot of individuals (large in scale), lack resources (neglected) but can be potentially impactful (solvable) if you choose to focus on them.

Making a difference through your career

Most of us would spend around 80,000 hours of our life at work. Have you thought about how you can use your career to help solve the world’s most pressing problems? Learn about what you can potentially do to help present and future generations.

Giving better and giving more

Most of us who are living in Singapore have the ability to give. Our community consists of many who pledge to donate more and to organisations that have been found to be highly effective in their interventions, such as saving lives. You might be able to create a lot more impact through your giving than you realise.
