Humanists around the world celebrate World Humanist Day every year on 21st June. The day of the June solstice, a day symbolised by gatherings, it is an occasion for Humanists to promote the values they hold. Activities ranging from parties, conferences and activist gatherings will be staged in countries across the globe to promote the Humanist view.
Humanism embraces the value of the human, promoting critical thinking over dogma. Typically secular and democratic in approach, humanists look to human experience and rational thinking for knowledge and values. World Humanist Day originally began in America in the 1980s, but has since grown in to a worldwide event recognising the global nature of Humanist thought
