THE ACT OF REMEMBRANCE, CHANGED
Every year we gather on the eleventh of the eleventh, to bow our heads. We look down. We pay our respects to the men and women across the Commonwealth who gave their lives in the two world wars.
But 2020 is different. No crowds can gather at the Commonwealth War Grave Commissions cemeteries or monuments to pay their respects to the fallen.
That’s why we created #ShineOn. An inclusive, digital Remembrance initiative. An online experience allows people to name a star in a virtual recreation of the night sky after a person that died.
And at 7pm on 11.11.20 we encourage people to look up.
To remember all 1.7m of them.
