We met in 2040 and shared wine, souvenirs and hope about the end of life: what has changed since 2016? What has remained the same?
We had the chance to welcome to special guests that evening:
- Silvan Luley is a board member at Dignitas, a swiss-based assisted suicide organisation. Switzerland is amongst the most advanced countries regarding assisted suicide and Dignitas supports legislation efforts globally (see recent example of Canada)
- Estelle Hary is a French designer and co-founder of Design Friction who designed a suicide wearable, giving its wearer the choice to die at any time with a 24 hour notice. They used this project to create awareness around assisted suicide in different communities with a focus on the UK

The evening was ended with a round of DEATH, a conversation game prototype.
