The 2019 Humanists International General Assembly (GA) will take place on Sunday 2 June 2019 in Reykjavik, Iceland, in conjunction with the General Assembly of the European Humanist Federation, and a conference organised by the Icelandic Ethical Humanist Association over the same weekend.

The General Assembly brings together representatives of Humanists International Member Organizations from all over the world to form the democratic governing body of the humanist movement. We hold our General Assembly each year in conjunction with a conference hosted by one of our Member Organizations. In 2019, we’re in Reykjavik, hosted by the Icelandic Ethical Humanist Association, who are holding an international conference on Saturday 1 June
