The Great British Forest Highway

A fictional plan to link up Great Britain's woodlands.

About the project:

The Great British Forest Highway explores how non-human-centred design methods can be applied to afforestation (the creation of new forests).

The project proposes to link Great Britain's core woodlands together using a network of 'forest highways' and presents a data-driven methodology for deciding the route of such a network.

The proposal is manifested as a series of maps and as a fictional government green paper, a type of document used in the early stages of policy development to encourage debate on a specific topic. This format is leveraged to not only present a proposal for The Great British Forest Highway, but also to explore how the language and concepts of non-human-centred design could enter the political domain.
