Online course about Humanism

Humanists UK have teamed up with FutureLearn to create a free online introductory course about Humanism.  It takes six weeks, at three hours per week, the first run starting on February 19th. Some of us who are studying the course are going to organise a few informal meetings, so we can chat face to face about how we’re finding it.  If you’d like to join in, drop us an email.  We’ll try and do the same for future runs of the course, if there’s interest.
