The CLIMAVORE Station is seeking a permanent home for its activities on the Isle of Skye. Multiple options are being considered, including the renovation of historical landmarks at risk and the restoration of a coastal site. The process will include ecosocial material innovations developed in partnership with local craftsmen and fabricators. Reinterpreting the use of waste shells and seaweed as new materials for the construction sector, their use in the CLIMAVORE Station will contribute to the development of circular economies between food and building businesses on Skye, and the wider Highlands and Islands, exploring new avenues for alternative forms of caring for the coast.
