Montreal, Canada – April 14, 2016 /PressCable/ — Online memorial platform and death positive community leaders, Qeepr, has announced the fourth instalment of their acclaimed #TalkDeath live web series where the public is given the chance to ask their questions to death professionals. Founder of the Urban Death Project, Katrina Spade along with the founder of the Green Burial Council, Joe Sehee will join hosts Mandy and Jeremy on April 28th, 2016 at 4pm EST/1pm PST for Episode 4: Eco-Burial and Human Composting.
Qeepr founder, Mandy Benoualid, explains that “the mission of #TalkDeath is to promote discussion about life’s big questions on death and dying from different perspectives.” #TalkDeath hosts professionals whose approaches to death and dying come from varied backgrounds, providing the public with the opportunity to ask their questions via social media. Benoualid expresses that “the discussion on green burials, human composting and other eco-friendly funeral alternatives is important because our current traditions are undergoing a drastic shift, largely due to the public’s awareness of its devastating effects on the environment. The Qeepr team is very excited to host Katrina and Joe as this edition’s panelists as they are at the forefront of this important shift.”
The #TalkDeath web series has become a venue for death professionals and the general public to come together in conversation. #TalkDeath aims to change the reality that the public should only speak with death professionals when they are forced to do so by circumstance. Past #TalkDeath panelists include New York Times bestselling author and mortician, Caitlin Doughty, and About.com’s Death & Dying editor, Chris Raymond.
#TalkDeath Episode 4: Eco-Burial and Human Composting, with Katrina Spade and Joe Sehee can be streamed live via Google+ and YouTube on April 28th at 4pm EST. The public is invited to start asking their questions to the panel immediately via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram by including the hashtag ‘#TalkDeath’ in their message.
