Dying to Know Day August 8

Dying to Know Day on August 8 each year aims to foster deep conversations about the one thing all humans have in common - death. After reading a book called “Dying to Know: Bringing Death to Life,” the Australian organisation  The Groundswell Project decided to dedicate an entire day to destigmatising the topic of dying and educating others on how to die in a way that stays true to themselves and their wishes. The hope is that we’ll all accept and plan our death so that we can better live in the present moment.
