Human remembering is a central and crucial aspect of our everyday lives, even though most of us are not aware of this. One might think that for remembering we only need to use our brains, but more and more evidence shows the outside world’s influence on our memory and memories, which provides us with lots of opportunities for the future. In this paper the focus will lie on our physical and technological environment, and how these relate to remembering in the complexities of everyday life. Human remembering will be explained and designed interventions will be presented that have been created to support everyday remembering.
