The World Humanist Congress, held every three years, is a unique event bringing together humanists from over forty countries under the auspices of the International Humanist and Ethical Union. In 2014 the British Humanist Association will host the World Humanist Congress in the beautiful and historic city of Oxford from 8-10th August.
The British Humanist Association (the host of the World Humanist Congress) is committed to making this year’s Congress the largest, most inclusive and most successful yet. We can only do this with your help. Please consider donating to support the World Humanist Congress.
