Event Description

Join us for AAI's first European conference! One focus of the conference will be on religion and politics – what challenges do we as non-believers face today, and do we have a strong enough voice in the debate? But the conference is much broader than that, and we have a fantastic line-up of speakers from all around the world and covering many different fields. You can look forward to presentations by some of the most influential psychologists, philosophers and biologists in the world – and that is just a small part of it.
In addition to the listed speakers, we also have a highly relevant, surprise speaker you do not want to miss who will be presented Saturday, June 19.
