Join us as Ms. Ngaio Davis guides us in understanding how reclaiming former end of life practices can suit our modern values and expectations, particularly as it relates to our need to leave a lighter footprint on our earth.

We regularly read about and have conversations around the climate crisis and I know that many of us are sincere about wanting to do our part to treat earth more kindly in our daily lives. However, the rounding out of our eco friendly efforts during our lives hasn’t been an easy option to find, if available at all, at the end of our lives.

Fortunately, through largely grass-roots efforts, changes are coming and eco friendly endings are slowly becoming real to those who seek them. By having these important conversations, sharing experiences and providing information about how to advocate for better eco friendly end of life options in your community, we will be able to maintain our earth loving values at death as we have in life.

Speaker’s Bio
Ngaio Davis is a lover of life and the quiet enjoyment of the world around her (except when it comes to music which she generally likes to play very loudly). By trade she is a carpenter, funeral director, embalmer and has an entrepreneurial spirit. Ngaio has always been keen to be the change that she needs to forge her own pathways through life. In 2014 she founded and is currently the principle owner of KORU Cremation | Burial | Ceremony, a grass-roots, women-led funeral business in Metro Vancouver that specializes in natural deathcare, green burials and eco- friendly cremation options.

Action evenings are hosted by the Vancouver Unitarians, who firmly believe in social and environmental justice – but this is not a religious event! All are welcome.
