Thursday, 13th September 2012 at 7:45pm in The Crown Hotel, 43 Lime Street, Liverpool L1 1JQ

As usual, we will meet in the upstairs room.

Bob Churchill will talk to us about the work of the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), and about Humanism around the world. Having worked professionally for two national Humanist organisations, the British Humanist Association, and the Uganda Humanist Association, and lately at the IHEU itself, Bob has a unique perspective on “global Humanism”. How is Humanism expressed in other parts of the world? What are the issues being addressed – or faced – by humanists in differing regions? With particular emphasis on the work of IHEU’s staff, delegations and national member organisations, Bob will attempt to answer these and any other questions you may have.

Hopefully, he will also tell us more about his experiences working in Uganda, and of the efforts of Ugandan Humanists, Skeptics and Freethinkers to establish a Humanist movement, and set up Humanist Schools. As many of you will know, Liverpool Humanist Group has been active for some years in raising funds for the Uganda Humanist Schools Trust.

It will be good to see new and old friends at what promises to be an interesting evening.

Bob Churchill was Head of Membership and Promotion at the British Humanist Association from January 2008 until May 2011. During this time he was actively involved in the Census Campaign, played a major role in setting up HumanistLife and the Resolution Revolution, and supported the Atheist Bus Campaign.

He subsequently spent a year as a Development Executive Volunteer with the Uganda Humanist Association.

He is currently employed as Communications Officer by the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU).
