Effective X High Impact

Why Fund Us

TerraPraxis is recognized as one of the most effective organizations tackling climate change.

When you read our 2021 Annual Review, you will see an organization that –during its first full year of operations– has contributed to a permanent change in both the perceptions of, and potential solutions to, the world’s biggest problem – decoupling energy and carbon emissions.

In this section you will learn why leaders in the Effective Altruism movement and beyond support TerraPraxis:

"TerraPraxis is a new organisation headed by Kirsty Gogan and Eric Ingersoll, a renowned advocate for (next-generation) nuclear power as a key piece of the climate solution puzzle.

William MacAskill, Author and originator of the Effective Altruism movement

As a very small organization and with a relatively small pro-nuclear funding landscape, TerraPraxis has not been able so far to scale to its full potential. For this reason, we not only invested in TerraPraxis’s programmatic work, but also in its organisational capacity..."
