The Future of End Debate at The Future of Ageing Conference 29th November

Event Date: 29th November 2017

The International Longevity Centre will be hosting a debate on ‘The Future of End’ at The Future of Ageing Conference 2017 on Wednesday 29th November at the Amnesty International Human Rights Action Centre in London.

Questions to be raised will include:

  • Will we live forever, or die in style?
  • Will the dead keep tweeting?
  • Can we continue to take selfies with the deceased?
  • Are funerals as we know them outdated, or are the hearse and black suit here to stay?

 

The debate, chaired by Baroness Sally Greengross OBE (Chief Executive, ILC-UK) will feature Professor Douglas Davies (Director, Centre for Death and Life Studies) of Durham University’s Department of Theology and Religious Studies, and one of the UK’s foremost experts on death, dying and ritual.  Find out more here.
