Humanism and African Youths: The Way Forward for a Progressive Partnership
Africa Working Group (AWG), the regional arm of IHEU member organization IHEYO, coordinating the growth of Humanism in Africa, is organizing a nine-day e-conference to enable young Africans to discuss the fundamental issue of the advancement of Humanism in Africa. The online conference will be held in parallel with the IHEYO conference in Vijayawada, India: see also the conference announcement.
Founded a year ago, AWG has watched with keen interest the zeal with which young Africans promote the ideals of Humanism amidst crass religiosity through their activities.
AWG cordially invites all visionary humanist youth groups and individual humanists around Africa to register their interest to participate in the program.
Participation will require a minimum of two hours during the first four days (29th to 2nd) and 30 minutes each day for the rest of the conference, except on the 3rd when everyone must vote on the resolution before midnight. One can participate throughout the day, so one can combine it easily with work, study or other commitments.
Interested participants should send an e-mail with the message: ‘REGISTER ME’ to [email protected] before 20 October. The reply to the mail will contain further information including the e-conference agenda, guiding rules and other logistics.
Kindly note that this e-conference will be a forerunner to the sub-regional meetings coming up early next year in East and West Africa.
