What we're about

Welcome to the Canberra Humanist meetup group.

The meetup group has two basic goals. Firstly, we want to develop a social space where humanists, and like-minded thinkers; atheists, free thinkers and others can meet each other and socialise. We are not alone!

Secondly, we want to create a lively local humanist community in Canberra through social events, discussions, a book club and activism.

Please feel welcome to join us for friendly get-togethers and to explore a humanist approach to issues, large and small.

• Some words about humanism taken from the Amsterdam Declaration 2002:

"Humanism is a lifestance aiming at the maximum possible fulfilment through the cultivation of ethical and creative living and offers an ethical and rational means of addressing the challenges of our times. Humanism can be a way of life for everyone everywhere."
