Human beings are social animals, and we often feel the need to get together to find support, learn new things, meet new people, and work together for a common cause. Very often we just want to get together to relax and have fun with like-minded people.
You might want to satisfy these desires in relation to your humanist, atheist, or secularist beliefs – which is where local humanist groups come in!
Local groups undertake a variety of activities, and give you the opportunity to:
- Meet and socialise with like-minded people;
- Campaign on humanist, atheist and secularist issues;
- Learn, exchange ideas, and debate issues;
- Volunteer and engage in other charitable work;
- Represent atheist, humanist and secularist views, and provide a balance to the influence of religious groups;
- Promote and celebrate scientific and rational thinking;
- Promote Humanism as a life-stance;
- Have fun!
