Perhaps humanity is like a teenager – still young and reckless? In that case, we might have many long and happy years ahead of us. Or we could make a bold move and end things too soon. Will MacAskill is a moral philosopher at the University of Oxford. He is also one of the most influential people in the Effective Altruism movement, striving to create a better world using resources like our money and time. He has founded the Centre for Effective Altruism, as well as Giving What We Can (allocating money), and 80,000 Hours (allocating time).

Heja Framtiden met him in Stockholm while promoting his new book What We Owe The Future, which is released in Swedish as Vad framtiden förtjänar. In the book, he makes the case for longtermism – that caring for future generations is a moral imperative for us here and now, and that preveting existential risks is one of the most important actions we can take to ensure that the teenager lives a long and flourishing life.
