    This webinar is organised by the Older Persons Advocacy Network Australia and will take place on Wednesday 28th October from 3pm-4pm AEDT.  COVID-19 has made life challenging for many and older Australians, their families, and those working in aged care have been some of the worst impacted. In response, the Federal Government has invested $12.4 million in a Grief and Trauma Response package to provide support for older Australians, their families, and aged care staff who have been affected by COVID-19.

    This webinar aims to ensure that everyone who needs support from this Response package can access it.

    This webinar (in Spanish) on "Dignified Death in Colombia" organised by DescLAB will take place on Wednesday, October 28th at 6:00 PM (Colombia time). The webinar will focus on the advances in the right to die with dignity and, particularly, to have access to euthanasia in a legal way. This is one of the issues on which Colombia has made significant progress in terms of legislation.

    DescLAB will also launch its publication "Death with Dignity in Colombia", which is an effort to systematize the history of judicial activism that has covered the law in the last 25 years and the challenges faced in guaranteeing it.
