Net Zero Visions Public Commission Winner
The Vision is titled Call of Nature: A Community Eco-hub for Exmouth. The Call of Nature hub will be a small but perfectly formed mini “expo” with loads of practical, working examples of changes people can make to live more sustainably, e.g. solar power, heat pump, insulation, ecology at home, composting, re-use and repair.
The project will lead by example – powered by green energy with a zero-waste policy and Fairtrade, locally sourced products in its revenue-creating cafe. It will be a quirky, arty, fun and interesting space in which groups from all parts of the community could meet, with a high-quality infographic led design. The Vision imagines the Hub as staffed by local people with knowledge of the community, supported by the Town Council, located on the edge of the internationally recognised Exe Estuary nature reserve, and developed from a decommissioned toilet block!
