Let me inform you that at the present time the International Summer school is going in Moscow suburb. 24 people came to the Inquiry Center/Russia to study Secular Humanism, critical
thinking, and discuss the prospect of the New Enlightenment in Russia and over the world. Four lecturers work with the participants that are Andrzejy Dominochak (CSF-Poland), Floris van den Berg (CSF-Law Countries), Valerii Kuvakin (CFI-Russia), and Prof Dmitry Leont'ev (Moscow State University). I am happy to say that we are doing very well. During 10 days we plan to have the classes, round tables, and free discussions. Students from Russia and other countries like it very much. Participants ask me to send the photo to you. I am doing that with the great respect and best wishes.

First Asian Humanist Congress
For years, organized humanists and skeptics have gathered in China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia. From June 22-23, 2013, the Philippine Atheists and Agnostics Society (PATAS) will host the first major meeting of Southeast Asian humanists in Cebu City, the Philippines. (Please register by June 10th).
The historic gathering will be held at the DepEd Ecotech Center in the city. Participants will discuss human rights issues and proposed humanistic solutions. Those attending will come from Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia and other nations.
PATAS is one of the most impressive humanist organizations in the world. They have thousands of members from all over the Philippines. However,, not all of them will be able to make it to Cebu City for the conference. For that reason, PATAS is trying to raise money to provide transportation and conference registration fees for members in the Manila area. For only $110, a member from Metro Manila would be able to attend.
Those interested in donating to this worthwhile effort may contact Marissa Torres Langseth email@example.com For more information about the conference, visit http://patas.co/event/first-asian-humanist-congress-in-cebu-philippines/
