The project is called ”The World Remembers” and is produced by director R.H. Thomson and Martin Conboy.
They’ve worked on similar memorials.
The latest will display names of all soldiers, who died on both sides of the conflict.
Later this month, the pair will launch a website that families can search for relatives who died and find out when their names will appear.
In Canada, the names of fallen soldiers will be displayed starting October 20th at participating schools and institutions across the country.
Between 2014 to 2018, their names will be projected on public buildings and in schools.
Each name will be shown for 25 seconds in participating countries, online and on mobile devices.
Nine countries including Canada are taking part.
