Norwegian Humanist Youth (Humanistisk Ungdom) is the association for humanists between the age of 15 and 25 i Norway.
We are the youth organisation of the largest humanist association in the world, the Norwegian Humanist Association, and all the members of the Humanist Youth are also members of the Norwegian Humanist Association.
The organisation is relatively newly founded. The constitutional meeting took place at Tjøme on the 16th of August 2007. Since then the organisation has grown rapidly, and after one year we had more than 450 members spread around the country. Now we are reaching for 2000 and still growing.
Norwegian Humanist Youth is a meeting place for young people who base their life stance on humanist values.
The Association will work to develop humanism and contribute to ensuring that young people may practise and discuss their humanist life stance.
The current president of the Norwegian Humanist Youth is Anders Garbom Backe.
In 2011 the Norwegian Humanist Youth hosted its first international summer camp. A report from the camp can be found here.
