World Humanist Congress 2023: Building better democracies through humanist values

It is with great pleasure that we announce that the World Humanist Congress 2023, and Humanists International’s General Assembly 2023, will take place in the center of Copenhagen, Denmark on Friday August 4 to Sunday 6 2023.

We hope this will be a chance to strengthen international humanist collaboration, almost a decade since we last had the opportunity to meet for a large international humanist congress.

Registration is now open. Click here
