Event Description

What is Humanism?

Wed 22 February 2017 19:00-21:00 - RHB 137

Humanism is a philosophy for every day, a set of ideas to help us live life well and make sense of the world. It is open to every single person. It does not depend on belief in God.

Come and hear Andrew Copson, Chief Executive of the British Humanist Association (BHA) explain what humanism is, its history and take on the world today.

Followed by Q&A discussion with panel: Andrew is joined by Asher Fainman, Chair of Goldsmith’s Atheist, Secularist & Humanist Society; Lauren Nicholas, Coordinator of the BHA Young Humanists, and Hester Brown from the South East London Humanist Group.

Tickets are free and available on the door or bookable in advance here.

This event was organised by the Goldsmiths Atheist, Secular & Humanist (ASH) Society together with the South East London Humanist Group (SELHuG).
