Sensing the Forest

Sensing the Forest pursues raising awareness and understanding of forest environmental data and how they relate to climate change.

Sensing the Forest is a project funded by the UKRI Arts and Humanities Research Council that aims to raise awareness among forest visitors/aficionados, artists, scientists, and the general public about the connection between forests and climate change. Community building will centre on looking at a better understanding of forest behaviour using complex scientific data in creative and artistic ways.

The project will run from 2023 to 2025 in the Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary University of London; in partnership with the Music, Technology and Innovation - Institute of Sonic Creativity (MTI2) at the Leicester Media School (LMS), Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Media (CEM) at De Montfort University (DMU); Forest Research and Forestry England.
