From 2 until 6 August, 2013, the ‘European Humanist Youth Days’ (EHYD) will bring more than 450 young people from the four corners of Europe to Brussels for a major conference exploring the ideas and visions of youth on the future of Europe. All of us at IHEYO very much support this project and therefore we want to encourage all humanist organizations in participating in the EHYD.
Organized by a number of IHEYO members in Belgium, it is a golden opportunity for humanist organizations to strengthen their youth groups and organizations. They will find in this conference inspiration, skills and a network to build on in the future. It is also an excellent opportunity reach out to other young humanists, getting young people involved in the translation of humanist values into the reality of our contemporary European society. Thematically, the perspectives addressed at the conference will converge around three axes: politics & society, science & ethics, and humanism in the 21st century.
