Families Can Talk About Funerals, Dying and Death With Singaporean Students' Social Campaign
You can start with this "dabao" kit with your family. The campaign runs until 1 March 2020.
What if your loved one(s) died all of a sudden? Are there things you wished you had told them? Would you wonder what kind of funeral they wanted? How to talk about death—it is no longer going to be a taboo topic; all thanks to the death campaign by Singaporean students.
Four students from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University started an online campaign – ‘Dying to Talk’ – to encourage people to talk about death more openly. The campaign was a combined effort by students of the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information – Janice Ng Li Ting, Yeo Zhi Yi, Chan Xiao Ying Lynn and Tan Su-Qing Hazel. It aims at making ‘death’ a more discussable topic for people of the age group 45 to 59.
