Religions, Science and the Secular - Conference 2014

Public Life Annual Conference

Science and Religion(s) a tired battle-ground, or a vibrant interface? What are the conditions for these central pillars of so many cultures, both large and small, that enable citizens to discover and re-discover what it means to know and to grow?

Come, hear and respond to scientists, scholars and social activists as they present their research and perspectives, with a view to seeing the possibility of new relationships between science and religions, and explore together what in fact “secular” can mean!

Please attend and participate!
