Why World Humanist Forum
Open spaces, virtual or physical where people meet to exchange their best experiences in their own areas of activity. As in ancient roman cities, where forums, outside cities and towns were places to trade, in goods, ideas, arts or simply socialize in a free open and unrestricted manner.
World Humanist forum intend a similar level of communication and exchange of experience and best practices on the way to the creation of a free, non-violent and more humane society. Humanists aspire to a Universal Human Nation.
Who are Organizing the Forum
We are Humanists who aspire to a Universal Human Nation, free of violence (in all its forms) where Universal Human Rights are fulfilled and enforced everywhere, where the standard of relationship becomes “Treat others as you like to be treated”
Why participate in Humanist Forum
With the reducing space of expression for any positive-minded organization or individual, The World Humanist Forum is on open-space of expression, networking-activities to build a better world, a world without violence, a world without discrimination, without borders, without poverty, in short, with the best available to all.
Are we merging everyone in Humanist Forum
No, on the contrary, we strongly believe in “Diversity”. We are clear that the world cannot and should not be of one view. All expressions need open space for expression without discrimination. There cannot be an official view, as long as we agree that violence and discrimination need to be stopped at all levels, in any expression whatsoever.
How does Humanist Forum help my organization
Being an open-space, the Forum is a space for every organization to express its ideas and invite others to connect for a wider networked activity. Every organization is invited to create their page with all details and invite people to join in their activities. The Forum is like your website informing people about your activities and inviting them to connect with you through the interactive features.
At the same time, all the organizations can come together to work jointly on common issues across the geography. These calls for joint working can come from any organization and many such calls are welcome at the same time, on various issues.
Also, there can be study-groups discussing on various important issues facing humanity, resulting in jointly agreed ideas to conduct joint activities. These study groups can have active participation from individuals and organization in various modes of interactivity through the website.
How is World Humanist Forum different
Being an open-space, the WHF is a unique environment that is open to all humanist-minded organizations and individuals to express their views, activities, network with others to join the activities.
For us, all those who believe in Non-violence and Non-discriminatory world are humanists
