NuTech 2018 Cape Town

NuTech is the premier new technologies into end of life choices group.

Founded some 20 years ago by John Hofsess, Rob Neils, Philip Nitschke & Derek Humphry, NuTech meets regularly to showcase new 'inventions, thinking, developments' in practical DIY (do-it-yourself) end of life options.

Last year (2017), NuTech was held in Toronto Canada and live-streamed to the world.

In 2018, NuTech was held on the final day of the biennial conference of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies conference (9 Sept).

Recordings of the live stream are now available to affiliates of NuTech.

Affiliates are folk who have donated $50 / €43 to the NuTech campaign on the Go Fund Me site.


Despite its longevity & productivity, NuTech has no operating budget to speak of.

Each meeting is uniquely funded.

In 2018, Exit International  & Final Exit Network  have donated $1000 each to help cover the conference & streaming costs.

To become an affiliate and receive access to the 2018 session recordings go to and donate.

By joining NuTech 2018, you join a growing community supporting the research and development of the future of dying peacefully, with dignity and at a time of your choosing.

You will be helping everyone who believes that control over  the way one dies is a fundamental human right.

A right that is ours alone: a right to undertake when, and only if we, choose.

Excess funds will be held in trust for NuTech 2019 and to help those within our community to undertake R&D in the coming 12 months.

If you have a related idea that needs time, effort & resources, you are invited to email us at [email redacted]
