Statutory Objectives:

The EHF’s objectives are defined in Article 3 of the Bylaws.

Our principal objective is to promote a humanist vision of cultural, social and ethical values in Europe and to work for social and cultural progress.

Subsidiary objectives include:

  • to carry out educational, scientific and cultural action
  • to promote, primarily in Europe, the place of non-profit organisations with the same objectives;
  • to represent its member organisations to the European institutions;
  • to promote exchanges among members and the circulation of information and experience that can contribute to the development of humanist values in Europe.


The EHF is an international non-profit organisation recognised by the Belgian government, with whom changes to our Bylaws have to be registered. The definitive version of the Bylaws is the French text.
