The University for Humanist Studies in the Netherlands is organising a conference on Empowering Humanity. Empowering Humanity can best be described as a political, moral and existential programme in which humanity is related to meanings of life, human dignity, quality of life and inclusive citizenship. Our research aims to develop humanity-empowering strategies in which bottom-up approaches are a key element. Academics with an interest in humanist studies are invited to share their insights with us, either by submitting a paper or by participating in the discussions.
The conference also marks the 50th anniversary of the International Humanist and Ethical Union. It will aim to discuss some of the major issues addressed in our Humanism, Meanings of Life, Care and Citizenship research programme.
