Launch of a new student federation

According to BHA Newsline 23 February 2009, last week saw the launch of the AHS - a new federation of atheist, Humanist and secular student societies, affiliated to the British Humanist Association. The BHA was instrumental in initiating the AHS and worked with them to organise the launch, as well as on new resources to help with the setting up of even more student groups. Andrew Copson, BHA Director of Education and Public Affairs, said, 'Our universities and colleges are places where the rational humanist tradition is at its best: places of free inquiry, of personal development and of community. The launch of the AHS today makes that explicit and we are delighted that we can support such a new group.' You can see photos from the launch on BHA site.
