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 themes. These 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.
