If you’re a university student looking to build or grow a local campus group, tabling is a good means of doing so. Most universities have a student activities fair where students advertise their activities, often called something like a Freshers Fair or Activities Expo. This is great for students early in the academic term and who have at least one other student willing to pitch effective altruism to new people.
To get started, check out the Student Activities Fair Guide or this guide on tabling with a Giving Game. If you’d like paraphernalia to hand out at your table or funding to professionalize your booth, you can apply for funding from the Centre for Effective Altruism.
