The Association for the Culture of Remembrance is dedicated to an area of our overall culture that is rich in tradition, in which individual mourning, recreation and the experience of nature in charming surroundings meld into a unique combination.
We respect the cultural traditions that are worth protecting, but we are open to all the needs of society.
Our working environment encompasses many facets, including cemetery-specific production chains and their social, economic and ecological side effects. We promote social projects and nature conservation in a range of networks.
The Association for the Culture of Remembrance sees itself as a cultural and economic interest group representing all stakeholders in the German cemetery system. Since its foundation, the Association has been engaged in a lively discussion about fields of action, which it then tackles with appropriate thoroughness:
Critical institutions such as the Federal Environment Agency, the German Federal Environmental Foundation and, most recently, the Robert Koch Institute have already addressed the issues raised, and initial results are available. The Intangible Cultural Asset Initiative has also been successful.
The most important key to the implementation of the Association’s goals is effective press and public relations work. The Association for the Culture of Remembrance also and especially supports its members in the field of publicity.
