Summerclass 8 July 2020

Wednesday the 8th July the EHP organised the first summerclass for humanist chaplains via Zoom. 16 chaplains form 6 countries attended the meeting, which was led by Prof. Carmen Schumann of the University for Humanistics in Utrecht. She started with an lecture and after that there was a lively discussion – also on the chat – about different themes. For instance the question what is a good name for the profession. The reactions were positive, the EHP will develop more activities in this field.

One of the reactions:
“Very valuable to connect with other humanists in the same field. Let`s stay in touch!”
