Young Humanists is the 18-35 section of Humanists UK. We want a world where tolerance, empathy and reason prevail, and where policy is created on the basis of evidence and equality. We work to ensure that more and more young people are aware of and active in humanism at the local level, and provide a national voice on issues that are relevant to them.

What do we do?
- We help young people understand what Humanism is, and that they may already be living by humanist values
- We run local and national events, providing opportunities for Young Humanists to meet, socialise, and learn
- We support Humanists UK with their campaigns (e.g. on humanist marriage) by making sure that young people are active in the campaign and that their views are represented
- We make sure that the humanist worldview is fairly represented in society (e.g. taking part in media engagements, representing the humanist point of view at interfaith events, running social media campaigns, sitting on school boards, and much more).
