November 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Portsmouth Green Drinks is part of the Green Drinks network, an international informal networking group on an environmental theme.
The main focus of the evening is the networking, but we also arrange for at least one person to stand up and give a ten minute talk about a green issue, campaign or publication that they are involved in. The speaking slots start from around 8pm.
We’ll be joined by Emma Collins who will be inviting us to dive into a discussion about what we might want to do about our own and our loved ones bodies when we die.
We will be exploring the options for greener funerals and the rules about how caring for our loved ones after they die, both in the immediate hours and days after and our options for where and how we bury our dead. We will explore the costs associated with funerals, both environmental as well as financial, and wonder about whether having greater involvement with caring for the bodies of those we love might support us in our grieving and loss.
