Overview

This article describes the organisations which comprise a small but growing global transhumanist political movement. Although these organisations vary in their priorities and their methods, they share the goal of promoting policies that further the objectives of transhumanism and transhumanists. Policies promoted by these organisations are described in the page Politics.

Transhumanist think tanks

Think tanks are organisations which seek political influence without creating a new party. Transhumanist political think tanks include:

Transhumanist Party

The first organisation bearing the name "Transhumanist Party" was founded in the USA in October 2014 by Zoltan Istvan who announced his plan to run for US President under this banner.

A semi-formal Transhumanist Party Global formed from activists involved in party formation internationally including Amon Twyman. This organisation has sought to coordinate the formation of various national political parties, often via Facebook initially.

In the UK, Alex Karran ran as an independent candidate in the May 2015 general election prior to the UK party's official registration.[1]

Shortly after the UK party's first AGM in October 2015, the UK party made a statement[2] stating that Zoltan does not have a 'real' political party and should claim no moral authority over the international movement.

List of organisations

The Transhumanist Party has active groups in various regions. There are emerging relationships with other similar parties. Other organisations are also listed.

Additionally there are "associated" groups in Canada, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, and Sweden.

These are groups which use the name "Transhumanist Party" or are in some other way associated with the global Transhumanist Party movement, but are not officially recognised full affiliates with the movement. In most cases, that lack of recognition is due to a level of activity that is not yet mature enough to properly represent the movement in that region.
