2020 Looking Forward / Looking Back
The year that was thanks to COVID-19 but it was not all bad news. Exit’s most recent Doxit Podcast ‘Looking Back Looking Forward’ reflects on the good and the bad to come out of the pandemic experience.
For example, like so many organisations around the world, Exit moved our core operations online.
Face to face workshops were abandoned in preference of Zoom workshops. Four, fully-online 4 hour meetings were held between June and October across different global time zones. Weekly Coffee & Chat sessions between Philip Nitschke & Exit Members carried on until Christmas Week.
The NuTech 2020 conference was also held entirely online in September. In retrospect, it seems perfect practice to have live-streamed the last two NuTech meets in 2017 and 2018 (in addition to in-room attendance). The step to virtual was never going to be too hard!
But COVID-19 also generated the odd good development. Not only did Donald Trump tell the world about Chloroquine (albeit as a life-preserver rather than ‘ender’), but developers created new anti-viral devices; helmets which may well be valuable when it comes to the use of gases for a peaceful and reliable end of life choice (more to come in the PPeH).
The first Doxit Podcast for 2021 examines these issues and more; including our forthcoming Exit Mini Monthly Workshops – Snippets – which commence online Wednesday 3 February at 21.00 GMT. Registrations will open Sunday 10 January.
