What Is D2K Day? Australians Are Dying to Know

What is D2K Day?

It may sound like a cool music festival, a hip tech conference, or perhaps the latest Y2K challenge for coders to surmount. But D2K isn’t a chance to catch your favourite bands or learn about the latest digital breakthroughs. D2K Day is an opportunity to get answers to everything you wanted to know about death but were afraid to ask.

That’s right. Death. 

An annual day of action created by The GroundSwell Project and launched in 2013, Dying to Know Day is “dedicated to bringing to life conversations and community actions around death, dying and bereavement.” 

Dying to Know Day

Dying to Know Day aims to encourage Australians to develop their death literacy, make end of life plans and share them with their families, learn about end of life and death care options, and be better equipped to support family and friends experiencing death, dying and bereavement. 

You can take part in D2KD by hosting an event, joining a death café, or simply talking to a loved one about their (or your) end of life wishes. What are you dying to know?
