Death Cafe us a "social franchise" that allows individuals to host events in which they can discuss a variety of different topics that all relate back to death and morality.
So far, Death Cafe has helped to initiate thousands of events around the globe and provides those interested with a guide on how to do this. To have an event, the host simply needs to have a facilitator, a venue and guests. During the event the topics themselves can be as open-ended as the facilitator and host would like them to be, as long as they are related to death and mortality.
While the Death Cafe is not intended to be a grief counselling or support session, it can help people who want to come to terms with such issues like terminal illnesses or their fears over death. It can also be designed to simply discuss the subject for curiosity's sake.
