The Death Ed. Storybook is a compilation of abridged interviews with diverse groups and individuals who take up or engage matters of death, dying and grief in their work, art, activism, or belief system. The Storybook is a cross border initiative, which intends to get healthcare professionals, activists, religious communities, and diverse academic and lay institutions talking to each other about what death means, and how we can empower our communities to have good and meaningful end-of-life experiences.

The Death Ed. Storybook is a bridge-building project which encourages people of all age groups, ethnic, and gender backgrounds, to explore death before it becomes an urgent, and relevant concern. It also encourages the equal valuation and collaborative use of community knowledge about death, dying, and grief. The project is much inspired by similar initiatives in e.g. Australia and the UK (Dying well and Dying matters) and by the development of “compassionate communities” related to the work of Allan Kellehear.
