Humanists UK Convention 2021

June 19 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
ONLINE

In 2020, we were sadly forced to cancel our most ambitious Convention to date. This year, we’ve put together a spectacular one-day online event that is just as engaging and perhaps even more ambitious – reaching out to humanists not just in the UK, but from around the world. Join us on Saturday, 19 June 2021 – the weekend of World Humanist Day – for a programme of talks and discussions that will ask big questions about humanity’s past and future, putting humanist values and humanist ideas about our place in the universe into the spotlight.
