IHEYO is glad to announce for its 5th International Conference in Vijayawada, India under the theme “Critical Thinking & Free Inquiry Education”.
Many humanists recognize the importance of critical thinking and free inquiry in education. One can find courses and methods for this in countries such as the Netherlands, US, India, Germany, Belgium, Nigeria, etc. And there are non-formal educational activities in many other countries that stimulate young people to think and formulate for their own, like in Russia, Nepal, East Africa, all Scandinavian countries, Italy, Australia, Peru to name a few. In some organisations the methods are more developed; in others one can find the ideas in practice but not so thought out.
This conference will be an international training for using educational methods in critical thinking and free inquiry and a start for much more intense collaboration between Indian and young humanist groups and individuals worldwide. It would give young humanists from around the world a better understanding of humanist thinking and the problems in India as well as an opportunity for networking with like minded international organizations.
In this sense it is an unique activity with a global and national impact.
