We have developed our exploration of circular economics at sea into an annual programme.
“SALVAGE Scotland: a Maritime SOS”
collaborating with a set of inspiring creatives in a voyage around the coasts of Scotland,
exploring local sustainable design initiatives and circular economies at sea.
We set sail around Scotland in July with full programme details released first in our Salvage Scotland Newsletter.
