The Third International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide that took place this weekend in Vancouver BC (June 3 – 4) was the best Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide. The new information and growth in a common direction was phenomenal.
There was a leaders meeting on Thursday afternoon (June 2) where we discussed the language and the current directions of the issues. We also discussed how to better brand our message and improve our unified message.
It was decided that Hugh Scher, the legal counsel for the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition was chosen to lead a process of examining our message and possible ideas arounding branding and imaging.
We then discussed working together and planning a unified growth strategy and we agreed that Alex Schadenberg (myself) would continue to chair the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition International. Paul Russell (HOPE Australia), Peter Saunders (Care NOT Killing Alliance UK) Margaret Dore (Seattle Washington), Nancy Elliott (New Hampshire) and Mark Pickup (Human Life Matters – Edmonton AB) would join that committee. Subsequently, Paul Russell from Australia has been chosen to be the Vice-Chair.
The Third International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide created a unified team who are committed to a unified focus on an international basis.
It has also been determined that a European Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide will take place in Scotland in the first half of 2012 and an Australian (regional) Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide will take place in the second half of 2012.
The location and date for the Fourth International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide will be determined within the next year.
A package of DVD’s containing every presentation at the Third International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide can be ordered for $50.
