Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

Dorset Humanists have been invited to the signing ceremony of the Interfaith ‘Big Green Believers’ Agreement’ on Tuesday 29th November 2011. The ‘Big Green Believers’ Agreement’ commits the signatories and/or their communities to engaging in measurable actions in terms of sustainability. Although Dorset Humanists aren’t directly involved in this agreement, as it is primarily a faith groups’ initiative, we are supportive of the agreement’s environmental aims.

Environmentalist and author, Mayer Hillman, will be guest speaker and his talk is entitled: ‘Climate change: are we prepared to meet the challenge sufficiently?'  Mayer is a leading proponent of carbon rationing and Chair of the Global Commons Trust.

There will be one event  during the day from 1:00-3:00pm, and a repeat  in the evening from 6:30-8:30pm.

We will need to let the Rabbi know who will be attending, so please message David Warden at chairman(at)dorsethumanists.co.uk if you’d like to come along.  Attendees are requested  to bring identification.
