World Atheist Convention 2011

Jun 01, 2011 Comments Off by

Over the coming weekend, Atheist Ireland will host the 17th World Atheist Convention in Dublin.

The convention boasts some high profile speakers, including the world’s most prominent atheist Professor Richard Dawkins. They will be speaking on a range of topics including “Communicating Atheism”, “Religion: accommodate or confront?” and “Building Secular Coalitions”.

Also on the agenda is a discussion of the Dublin Declaration on Religion in Public Life, a modification of the Copenhagen Declaration from last year. This declaration can be found here

The convention sees the separation of Atheist Alliance International into two organisations, one for America, and one for the rest of the world, with the hope that this would accelerate their achievements. Atheist Alliance International was inaugurated in 2001 with the intention of unifying atheist and freethinking groups around the world.
