Join the Humanist Society of Victoria Inc. (HSV)

Three young children seated on stool reading booksWith membership of the Society, you receive our monthly newsletter Victorian Humanist (VH) as well as the national quarterly Australian Humanist (AH). We hold monthly member discussion meetings as well as monthly public lectures. You can become as involved as you wish. Also check out the submissions, which are so important to the HSV’s work.

Humanists make up a broad community of people wanting to see a more caring and compassionate society whose decisions are based on reason and science. We eschew religious dogma and superstition. Many humanists are also atheists, but you don’t have to consider yourself an atheist to be a humanist.

  2. Hello,
    I am surprised to see that no Humanist society exist in Tasmania. I am sure it is a concern for other Australian societies, what are your thoughts about this.

    Left it very late (90 years of age). Originally from Belgium. Can I still join? I will probably not be of great use to the HSV. I am doing this a tribute, and in memory of a great human being who died many years ago, and was a humanist.. I am an atheist..
    Kind regards,
    Willy Ruffner.

    I have just been in contact with Primary Ethics regarding my interest in seeing such a program operate in Victoria and they referred my to your program. I am keen to find out more about the intended program and how I might assist. I am a Victorian teacher, with more than 15 years teaching experience in independent schools in Melbourne and, whilst I am aware of the need for ethics education in primary schools, I wondered if there was any intention to provide services at a secondary school level. I am interested in finding out more about the program and proposed curriculum because i think there is a tremendous need for ethics and values education in schools. Please let me know how I can find out more.

    I’d like to learn more about the society. I was interested in the piece in the Age about volunteers needed for teaching philosophy as an alternative to RE in primary schools.
