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.

New 2011 British Humanist Association Strategy

Dorset Humanists are affiliated to the British Humanist Association (BHA). At the November 2010 GRAM (Group Representatives Annual Meeting) Andrew Copson, the new Chief Executive presented his new strategy for the BHA.

What do we want? (The “Vision”)

  • We want a world where everyone lives cooperatively on the basis of shared human values and respect for human rights.  
  • We want non-religious people to be confident in living ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. 

What do we do? (The “Mission”)

  • We promote Humanism, represent the non-religious, and support those who wish to live humanist lives, including through the provision of humanist ceremonies. 
  • We campaign for a secular state, challenge religious privilege, and promote equal treatment in law and policy of everyone regardless of religion or belief. 
  • We offer a humanist perspective in public debate, drawing on contemporary humanist thought and the worldwide humanist tradition.
