New FREE online course: Introducing humanism: non-religious approaches to life

Writer and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig is the face of our new introductory ‘massive open online course’ (MOOC) on humanismThis new course has been designed to explore how humanists approach questions such as: How can I know what is true? What is the best way to live? What kind of world do I want? It features contributions from well-known humanists, academics, campaigners, humanist celebrants, and humanist pastoral carers, as well as members of the public.

Launched in February 2018, thousands of people are already learning from the course.

‘I can’t recommend highly enough this free online course, from Humanists UK. It’s an exquisite example of how to teach Humanism – not just teach ABOUT Humanism, which our organizations and speakers love to do, but teach Humanism as a way of life and as a response to life’s great questions. This is the way forward for the Humanist movement: to make it clear that we have convincing and fulfilling answers to the same questions religions purport to answer, and to convey those answers in an accessible and engaging way. Well done, Humanists UK!’
