uring the Pandemic we have come together as a society to protect each other from physical harm, from Covid-19. We believe that we must now find ways to support the healing of our nation’s emotional and mental wellness. Today is the time when we must begin to collectively act to support the bereaved, and demonstrate our compassion towards those whose lives have been impacted by this Pandemic.

That is why we are working on a project to grow a network of Forest of Memories around the UK regions. We will plant, at a minimum, a tree for every life lost in the UK because of Covid-19. The Forest of Memories Vision is that each regional Forest of Memories will be created on the same themesThese themes are designed so that the Forests will establish a way to remember everyone impacted by the pandemic, but they will also help fight climate change, benefit UK biodiversity, and become an educational and cultural resource for local communities that also creates ‘Green jobs’.

The Forests of Memories will be true legacies for our society, legacies that create something good from the ashes of these tragic times.
