Why Are We Doing This?
We are growing a Forest of Memories to remember the loved ones lost because of Covid-19. A Forest created with love for those we have lost today and built on principles of sustainability, accessibility, and education to benefit future generations. All these things will be supported by the use of new technology, whilst still maintaining peace and tranquillity within a Forest environment.
Who is this for?
The Forest of Memories will be planted in remembrance of all the loved ones lost. But, it will also be in acknowledgement of the ordinary people who continue to overcome adversity and personal challenges during the pandemic. Challenges of loneliness, mental health, and much more were all existing (and sometimes hidden) issues, but these (and many more) have all been highlighted during this pandemic.
Fundamentals of the forest of memories
It is 2020 and we live in a digital world where technology should be used to benefit everyone. To reflect this the Forest Themes will be supported by the use of new innovative technology to aid remembrance, accessibility, and education. We will be publishing more details on how this technology will work very soon.
Our followers have told us that it is important that they can visit the trees that they dedicate to the loved ones they have lost. To ensure that trees that are dedicated to a loved one are within a reasonable distance for people, it is planned therefore that a network of Forests of Memories will be established around the UK.
