good life, good death, good grief


Digital Event Resource Pack Launched

A new resource pack has been launched to support people to hold digital events as part of Demystifying Death Week.

Taking place from 10-16 May, Demystifying Death Week is about shining a light on death, dying and bereavement in Scotland.

Since the first death awareness week back in 2013, each May, people across Scotland organise local events giving people the chance to talk about death, dying and bereavement.

Organising face-to-face events has become impossible for a while, but the need for opportunities to discuss death, dying and bereavement is more relevant than ever.

Produced by Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief, the new Digital Event Resource Pack is designed to make it easier for individuals and organisations to hold online events.

It includes outline event programmes, films and resources on four themes: What happens when someone is dying?; Planning ahead; Death in times of covid-19; Caring for the carer.

Also included in the pack is a guide to hosting digital events, with tips on how to plan, host and facilitate a digital event.

GLGDGG is also offering members in Scotland free use of a Zoom Pro account to hold an event during Demystifying Death Week, including: video conferencing, password protected entry and breakout rooms.

All these resources are is designed to support small group discussions over zoom, with input and facilitation from local experts.
