  2. In depth report on the pressing problem of democratic reform

    Walter Schiedel's research shows that throughout human history, inequality has only ever been reduced through violence. In an area of rising global inequality, we have an urgent need to introduce mechanisms that alleviate it nonviolently. The solution? Radical democracy globally. You mention this field as potentially promising, but an in depth look is warranted.

  3. Gene Editing

    I think that generic engineering is a currently under-recognized issue. I think that in your rankings of global priority areas, there is a significant gap that leaves out this very important issue. To put it briefly, in same vein as bioweapon risk, this technology democratizes the ability to cause cataclysmic destruction analogous to nuclear weapon risk by orders of magnitude. For instance, small changes in bee genomes reducing reproducibility (as has been discussed in the context of mosquitos) could have as much damage to the global food system as the a nuclear winter would now. The social and economic repercussions…

  6. Contact National Careers Service (A

    Contact national careers services (In the UK the National Career Service is the one to go for) to have 80k hours mentioned on their website, and in publications etc.
    Seems like an easy win as you would be fitting into a already used service, with a known, receptive audience.

  7. Consideration of Jungian psychology

    I noticed you seem to have not taken into account Jungian psychology in regards to a person's well-being. I find this problematic, because it seems to contradict your beliefs about passion and fulfillment through a career.

  8. Take into consideration problems of modern medicine

    Based on your career guide, you seem to have failed to take into account these problems: https://www.care2.com/greenliving/18-biggest-problems-with-modern-medicine.html

  9. Using an emerging personality system in career guidance

    There is a research team based in Portland, Oregon that has been working on a personality system for the past five years. They are known under the name Objective Personality. You should look into using some of the research from their system in career guidance. Their system has huge applications in AI, institutional decision-making, and career guidance. They have a YouTube channel called DaveSuperPowers.

  10. Evaluating the impact capabilities of Urban Planners

    Much of the work of a planner requires mediation between major facets of society: government, citizenry, and private interests. It's both policy and constructing the built environment, which has major repercussions on community psyche, health, sustainability, and longevity. For how involved planning is in daily life, it goes widely unrecognized. Can this be examined on the career page?

  11. Create a career review about antibiotic resistance research?

    Antibiotic resistance could cause 10 million deaths a year by 2050 (https://www.antimicrobialsworkinggroup.org/antimicrobial-resistance). Although this may be considered within the field of biomedical research, could the potential impact of reducing the dangers of antibiotic resistance merit its own career review on this website? Could this research tie into the existing profile on factory farming?

  14. Community College and Degree Reviews

    Hello 80,000 Hours,

    I'm Jacob. I am a community college student who constantly reads through your works to help myself decided on my educational outputs and career ideas. I wanted to make two suggestions.

    One, could 80,000 post a review on community college in their blog? The pros, cons, and 80,000 Hours overall thoughts on community college?

    Also, much like how you all have a career review page could you have a degree review page? Instead of listing out jobs it would list different BA degrees (English, Business, etc.) MA degrees, and PHDS? I know the career reviews has some…

  17. EA careers that mesh well with parenthood. Profiles of people with high impact who were also raising kids.

    There are a lot of parents (especially mothers) who take a career break or scale back on the hours worked in order to raise a family. How can these people go on to have a significant impact? Please profile people who had a large impact without neglecting their families. The first example that comes to mind is Jane Jacobs. What to do when the bottlenecks are limited time and career capital. Maybe talk about the role of volunteering in building civic society and the backbone of communities, the role of volunteering vs paid work.

  19. Add 4Ocean, The Ocean Cleanup, and Ecosia to your list of high impact companies

    Tackling the world's plastic problem should be treated as one of top priorities for the environment, our health and the whole planet. 4Ocean and The Ocean Cleanup are great companies which are both providing solutions in this area. And the environmental damage from deforestation is being addressed by Ecosia, and I believe these are all great companies to work for.

  20. Problem profile on 1-6C climate change

    There's a profile on tail risk of climate change, but it seems to me like the potential politically destabilising impact and many knock-on effects on global society of even 2 degree climate change is worth an appraisal. There's also the non-zero chance that even 2-4C degree climate change becomes unmanageable. Would you consider writing a profile on this topic please? Thanks
