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.

September Bulletin

DWThe recent World Humanist Congress in Oxford was a stunning success – please look inside this month’s Bulletin for our report and pictures.

Humanists are sometimes accused of being too human-centred. Our next talk by Emeritus Professor Norman Mclean, who is also Chair of South Hants Humanists, will help us to explore the philosophy and practicalities of animal rights.

As we approach the next election, Humanists should be concerned about the basic requirements needed to live a fulfilled and decent life. Housing is one such requirement yet in the UK today 600,000 people are homeless even though 740,000 residential properties stand empty. Please come along to our evening talk this month by Jude Todd who’s been on the frontline of this social problem.

Also in this month’s bulletin, we outline details of the forthcoming launch of Bournemouth Sunday Assembly on Sunday 28th September.

Finally, a quick reminder about our One Life course in Humanism and Atheism, which starts in October. We still have a limited numbers of places available and there’s a discount for anyone booking before 15th September!

For full details of all our events and news see inside the Bulletin. We hope to see you soon.


Best wishes,
David Warden
Chair, Dorset Humanists
