In the last two decades, various concepts of communal burial grounds have developed in cemeteries. These include different forms of themed graves, burial grounds for specific social groups, various offers that are practical especially in terms of a cost-benefit calculation, and burial grounds of commercial providers. It is the concern of the cemetery administrations to guarantee the quality of the respective facility in the long term. With this goal in mind, a number of legal aspects need to be considered.
The seminar will also introduce communal grave sites in the cemeteries of the participants and discuss them with regard to social, economic, ecological, aesthetic and legal aspects.
The seminar is aimed at cemetery office managers, cemetery employees from the practice of the cemetery, stonemasons, cemetery gardeners, undertakers, people interested in the design of grave markers.
Since the attention span in front of the screen usually decreases more quickly than in personal contact, the seminar is spread over four mornings. In the individual seminar units, participants will have the opportunity to present their own work as well as sufficient space for questions and discussions.
Maximum number of participants: 10 persons
The online seminar takes place via the tool "Webex". Requirements are PC or laptop with camera and microphone. You will receive the access link one day before the seminar.
