Our Mission & Approach

Humanism is a democratic, secular and ethical life stance, which affirms that human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives. It stands for the building of a more humane society through an ethic based on human and other natural values in the spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities. It is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality. The aims of the Association are:

1. promote Humanism in Malta by encouraging a greater knowledge of Humanism among its members and the wider community;

2. elaborate, and express publicly, humanist positions on issues of concern;

3. provide a forum for the intelligent exchange of ideas for those seeking fulfilment in an ethical secular life;

4. propose such legislation as is likely to facilitate the achievement of its aims;

5. help develop, through open discussion, the moral basis of a secular society and encourage ethical practices within our own membership and the wider community;

6. engage with national and international humanist organisations, thereby providing its members with information and access to a wider world of humanist interest and cooperation.

7. help develop educational programmes and internet content focusing on secular ethics, science, history and critical thinking for members, their children, and the public at large as alternatives to supernatural
interpretations of the human condition;

8. collaborate with other voluntary organisations in Malta, Europe and elsewhere which have an interest in developing and achieving similar objectives;

9. take action within Malta, and in the world at large, to improve the conditions of humanity and denounce bigotry, intolerance, and the persecution of ideas;

10. organise talks and other events for humanists and the wider community;

11. engage in any other activities which are consistent with the principles of Humanism, including support to Humanist celebrants, and Humanist pastoral care.
