With over 300 stations around the UK, the @RNLI works with more than 5,000 volunteers help people stay safe on the water. Eventually their equipment reaches the end of its utility. During this past #AcrossRCA, the Circular Harvest project intervened and challenged students to harvest a broken boat destined for disposal. After dissecting the carcass of a D-Class Lifeboat 15 creative minds developed a plethora of concepts to give this material a new life. Project run by @curiouskenneth, @joe_rouse and Céline Ducret ⛵️🌞⛵️
This week has been filled with AcrossRCA projects as diverse as they come; and some of them are investigating nature, and our relationship to it.
