Glasgow Humanists meet-up and discussion

Date: Sunday 10th March   /   Time: 1:30pm - 3:00pm

Join Glasgow Humanists at the Quaker Meeting House for a meet-up and discussion. Doors open at 1.30pm for a 2pm start. Tea and coffee will be available.

The group will talk over five big issues. There will be a chance to vote on which of the following topics you’d like to discuss:

1. At what point does free speech begin to turn into violence, and how can we best navigate this nuance in the quest to maximise it?

2. Should English just be totally degendered?

3. Is the social norm of monogamy a remnant of pre-secular morality?

4. Should children be enfranchised?

5. Should the focus of climate management be the long-term reversal, as opposed to mitigation, of anthropogenic climate change?

As humanists we enjoy robust discussion and don’t shy away from difficult topics, but we ask that people engage respectfully. Please note that the views and opinions expressed in the room are those of the individual participants, and will not necessarily reflect the views or positions of the society.  Enjoy the conversation!
