How can Humanist & Muslim Londoners live & work with each other?

London is probably the most diverse and vibrant city in the world. Many cultures call London their home, but what unites us as Londoners?

London is probably the most diverse and vibrant city in the world. Many cultures call London their home, but what unites us as Londoners?

One in eight of our fellow Londoners are Muslim, but how much do we know about London’s Muslim communities? And how much do they know about Humanism? Is there a common ground? What diversity exists amongst Muslims in London? What is changing? Can we see beyond our differences? How can we work together?

This evening of discussion is a unique opportunity to address these questions and others you may wish to ask.
