About the project

According to the recent population census, about a fifth of Singaporeans identifies as non-religious. This represents a minority of the population in religiously plural Singapore. The religiously conservative segment of Singapore wields significant influence in areas of politics, education, and business. As such, humanists in Singapore presently face an uphill task of improving the humanist brand.

The project approach has been to work with other religious groups and communities in interfaith dialogues. This promotes a softer image of the humanist brand in Singapore. These discussions will cover issues of interest, such as LGBTQ+ rights, secularism, and racial/religious discrimination. Through education and engagement, this can steadily improve the humanist reputation, as well as promote social harmony.
