Guardians Foundation (GF) is a think-and-do tank for realizing projects related to developing and promoting an ethical framework that prioritizes reduction and prevention of intense suffering.

“Guardians” comes from a vision (hinted in the teaser website guardians.gdn) of a future civilization whose explicit purpose is to guard sentience against extreme suffering in the [amoral] universe.

GF, while aspiring to the principles of effective altruism, takes a more speculative and explorative approach (but still reasonably cautious: as per e.g. 80,000 Hours’ “Ways people trying to do good accidentally make things worse, and how to avoid them”), as it sees may be justified by unknowns of its long-term perspective, the fresh start, and self-fulfilling prophecy effects.
