About Us

South London Humanists (SLH) support a positive caring alternative to religious belief.

Humanism is an ethical alternative to religion, based on reason, equal rights, free speech, and one law for all.
Unfortunately, just when fewer and fewer people are interested in religion, we are confronted more and more by religious privileges in education, the workplace and political life.

SLH seek to lead honest and law-abiding lives, according to the values of human rights and responsibilities.

These values include:

* Equal rights for everyone.
* Freedom of speech.
* No discrimination regarding gender or sexual bias.
* A democratic society with one set of laws for everyone.

About humanism

Humanism is a naturalistic view, encompassing atheism and agnosticism and is an active and ethical worldview that places empathy, compassion, and the welfare of people as the way to find meaning in our lives.

Wednesday 12 June 2019

Bruno Guillaume will give a talk on the work of the charity Practical Action. The charity was founded in 1966 as the Intermediate Technology Development Group by radical economist EF Schumacher and a group of like-minded colleagues. Schumacher, author of the book, Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics As If People Mattered, advocated the use of human-scale, decentralised and appropriate technologies. Practical Action works in the developing world with poor communities to develop appropriate technologies in renewable energy, food production, agro-processing, water, sanitation, small enterprise development, building and shelter, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.

Bruno Guillaume is a chartered civil engineer and chartered environmentalist who has been an active supporter of Practical Action for over 15 years.
