Part of the international Skeptics in the Pub movement, Leeds Skeptics if a vibrant community of thinkers who come together once a month to discuss areas of science, philosophy and public debate. Each event begins with a guest speaker presenting a talk on a specific topic, which is then followed by an open debate with the audience, and, of course, all of this is done in a pub. From time to time the group has also undertaken larger events and public awareness. All events are free to attend. Find out more at leedsskeptics.org.
Often described as "a secular alternative to church", the Humanist Community of Leeds is a social group for humanists who want to get together in an informal social setting to discuss the issues of the day. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings and put forward points of discussion for the group to consider. You'll find a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, and the chance to grab a few drinks and some food. Find out more at leedshumanists.org.
Looking forward to a brighter tomorrow - Leeds Transhumanists is a group for anyone interested in the Technological Singularity, Transhumanism, Posthumanism, Humanity 2.0, or any of the other names that are often associated with such movements. Join us on meetup.com.
HAGs as our volunteers are affectionally known are people who want to get out there and make a difference. The first Humanist Action Group was founded in 2009 by Chris Worfolk and Richard Parker which began with homeless outreach work and soon expanded into blood drives and community clean ups.
Since then we have gone on to develop educational resources for those looking to start their own Humanist Action Group and now publish a leadership guide and a homeless outreach guide - both of which are freely available. Find out more at humanistaction.org.
