#D2KDay – August 8th 2018

 

The Groundswell Project

Our purpose is to create a more death literate society, one where people and communities have the practical know-how needed to plan well for end of life. This means shifting focus from ‘talking about it’ to transforming this ‘difficult’ conversation into one of deep community engagement, social action and empowerment.
