Effective Altruism NZ 2019 Retreat - application Thursday 11th July to Sunday 14th July
Please fill in this form if you are interested in coming for some or all of the retreat - you don't have to commit to coming yet - this is really an expression of interest.
The retreat is designed for people who are familiar with effective altruism, and are dedicated to improving the world using evidence and analysis, whether by donating, volunteering, or through their career. While we will hopefully be able to accommodate everyone who is interested, there is a limited number of places, so please fill in this form and we will confirm! Any queries can be emailed to
The retreat will be held at the same place as last year: At the lodge at Camp Wainui, in Wainuiomata, about 40 minutes from downtown Wellington. The Lodge is surrounded by bush, at the foot of the Remutaka ranges.
We plan to organise car or van transportation from the airport and the city, and will do pick ups from the bus or train stops in Wainuiomata or Lower Hutt trainfor latecomers.
We expect that the retreat will cost about $150 per person for the whole retreat, including food. This will depend on the number of people coming as it is a fixed rate for the lodge.
Costs will be less for those that can’t come for the whole time.
However, we hope to get funding to help pay for retreat costs and transportation! So apply even if you don't have the $$$ to come!

How likely is it that you can make it for all or some of the retreat?
I can definitely make some or all of the time
I want to come, but not sure if I can make those dates.

Do you have any dietary requirements?
Are you okay sharing a room with others (we may be able to have people in a private room, but it may not be possible)
I'm fine to share with anyone
I'm fine to share with people of the same gender as me
I need to be in a private room if at all possible
Do you need or want funding to come? We may get a grant to help low income and student EAs with their flights and the cost of the retreat. Please outline what funding you would like to be considered for, e.g. Flights+ retreat, retreat only. Please include whether funding will be the deciding factor for your attendance.
Can you spare some additional money to help low-income and student EAs attend? If so, how much are you able to offer? (Note, we will only ask for this money if and when we need it)
Are you able to help out with the retreat?
I can help out with the planning from now on.
