Humanists Melbourne is a place for humanists to meet in Melbourne, Australia. We welcome all freethinkers, including atheists, agnostics, secularists, rationalists and progressive religious.
Humanism is a way of life that values human flourishing, freedom and the pursuit of knowledge. Humanists accept that we are responsible for our own futures and that this life is the only life we have. It is up to all of us to make the most of it and to help others do the same. Humanists inspire us to use our power of reason and our natural feeling of compassion to help create a better world in which each of us can reach our full potential. This Meetup is supported by Humanists Victoria (Humanist Society of Victoria Inc.) at vichumanist.org.au
In this talk, Meg Chanom will work to unravel our inherited belief systems about the role of animals in our lives and society. She will address how our treatment of animals intersects with other critical issues facing the world today. These issues include the climate crisis, human health and global hunger. Come and be challenged in your thinking about our relationships with and our moral obligations to other species.
Bio: Meg Chanom has spent much of her life so far as a professional Mixed Martial Arts athlete and coach, learning the nuances of discovering the best in herself and others while volunteering for animal and environmental causes in her spare time. In order to dedicate as much time as possible to creating crucial change, Meg now works in the Development team at Animals Australia alongside other passionate advocates to empower individuals to make compassionate choices.
We appreciate a gold coin donation at the door.
