The IHEU General Assembly 2016 will take place on Sunday 22nd May 2016, in Valletta, the beautiful fortress city and capital of Malta. The GA will take place from 0900 – 1700 at the Grand Hotel Excelsior (excelsior.com.mt). The hotel is located on the edge of Valletta, and there are a number of smaller inexpensive hotels in the area.
A weekend of Humanist events in Malta
The IHEU GA is part of three days of humanist events in Malta, including:
- Friday 20th May: General Assembly of the European Humanist Federation
- Saturday 21st May: Conference of the Malta Humanist Association, and General Assembly of IHEYO
- Sunday 22nd May: General Assembly of International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU).

We hope that many of you will choose to attend all three days of events and enjoy a weekend of humanist networking, debates, discussions and socialising in a sunny and relaxed environment.
