Cemetery of the future - shaping the future
The civic cemetery as a future cultural site
Also in the future, the cemetery will primarily be a place of burial, for people a real space of mourning, remembrance, honor and memory. Beyond the primary function, however, secondary functions such as recreation, relaxation, walking, and even ecological sustainability are becoming increasingly important. As is already apparent, citizens want to be more involved in the development and maintenance of cemetery areas, and in a certain way they want to be asked. There will be a synthesis of traditional traditional tombs, site-appropriate tree areas and community-based cultural offerings. The cemetery of the future, one can assume, will be a further developed park cemetery, a multifaceted usable natural cemetery, where there could also be cultural leisure activities such as a cemetery cafe or an event stage.
