Yuko Kondo was commissioned to create the artwork for Earthwatch’s ‘Tiny Forest’ campaign. Tiny Forests are densely packed native forests that fit into the size of a tennis court. This means they bring all the benefits of a forest – climate cooling, lower flood risks, biodiversity, improved air quality and physical and mental wellbeing – right into the heart of our cities and urban spaces. Yuko created a design that packs the wildlife and plant life of the United Kingdom in to this space. The design was used both online and also as mural in urban areas around the UK.
