About: What is the Mission of Humanity+?

Humanity+ is an international nonprofit membership organization which advocates the ethical use of technology to expand human capacities. We support the development of and access to new technologies that enable everyone to enjoy better minds, better bodies and better lives. In other words, we want people to be better than well.  

Where Did Humanity+ Come From?

Humanity+ was founded as the World Transhumanist Association (WTA) in 1998 by the philosophers Nick Bostrom Ph.D. and David Pearce. Its first task was organizing an international group of transhumanists to write the Transhumanist Declaration, published in 1998, and the Transhumanist Frequently Asked Questions, published in 1999. In 2002 Humanity+ incorporated as a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization headquartered in Connecticut in the United States. In 2008 the members of the WTA voted to adopt the “doing-business-as” name of Humanity+.
