About

Kocherga is the Moscow rationality hub.

It was founded by people from the Moscow LessWrong community when it grew large enough to need a place to call its own. Over the three years, it progressed from a simple meeting point to the organization and community of many talents.

Our mission:
  • To promote rationality, effective altruism, tranhumanism and other related ideas
  • To teach rationality and develop better methods for teaching rationality
  • To be a fertile environment for new rationality-adjacent projects

What do we do, specifically:

  • Develop and conduct monthly applied rationality workshops and other courses and trainings in a variety of formats 
  • Talk about rationality in social media
  • Host several regular events, including:
    • Weekly meetings of Russian LessWrong community
    • Sequences reading group 
    • Nonviolent Communication practice group
    • Street Epistemology practice group
    • English study group
    • Weekly lectures on popular science

After three years Kocherga is almost, but not quite, self-sufficient, and the initial investment is running out. If we survive, we could expand our community much more, and we ask for your support in this.

Here you can find a detailed history of Kocherga, our reasons to keep trying and why you might want us to succeed, as narrated by one the founders, Vyacheslav Matyukhin: https://www.lesswrong.com/posts/WmfapdnpFfHWzkdXY/...

We appreciate your attention to our cause. If you have any questions about Kocherga, feel free to email us at [email protected].
