Modern Humanism first emerged around 100 years ago, has been in Canada for about 60 years and the BC Humanist Association has existed for over 30 years. While the philosophy has evolved over the years, the importance of this progressive worldview, with its emphasis on reason and social justice, has never lost its importance and in an age of rising populist and nationalistic extremism is increasingly urgent.
In this talk, BC Humanist Association Executive Director will give a brief history of modern Humanism, a review of the campaigns being taken on by some of the major Humanist organizations around the world and a look at the challenges we're facing in British Columbia.
