The Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, was established in 1925 in memorial to the Newfoundlanders who lost their lives on active service during the First and Second World Wars.

The commemoration programme intends to engage the university, providing resources so that they can design their own commemorative project. The programme was officially launched on June 18 2014, and it intends to run until 2019.

More information about the university’s commemorative activities can be found on their website, which also includes educational resources for research and commemoration project planning. 

UPDATE:

Since posting this article, the University has contacted Centenary News with the following email:

Thank you for the coverage. As an update, since the program was launched in June 2014, the Living Memorial fund has funded 24 projects. The projects range from talks and symposia to research into aboriginal soldiers to original choral compositions based on war letters.
