About us

The European Humanist Federation (EHF), based in Brussels, was created in 1991 and unites more than 60 humanist and secularist organisations from about 20 European countries. It is the largest umbrella organisation of humanist associations in Europe, promoting a secular Europe, defending equal treatment of everyone regardless of religion or belief, fighting religious conservatism and privilege in Europe and at the EU level. 


EHF promotes the
principle of humanism
and of a secular State,
supports human rights,
and opposes discrimination
against non-believers
