Protecting and promoting Glasgow’s heritage – Professor David Walker

July 14, 2021 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

BEGINS the event blurb: “As lockdown restrictions in Glasgow start to ease, thoughts are inevitably turning to how the city will continue to chart its path out of the pandemic. With the COP26 climate change conference coming our way in November, how can the city best deal with the challenges ahead? 

“In our evening lecture series, ‘Transforming Glasgow’, we are looking to the past for inspiration and possible solutions. The series focuses on how Glasgow has changed and reinvented itself in a variety of ways from the latter half of the 20th century onwards to today. How have these changes come about and what has the impact been? What lessons can be learned?

“Those of us working to protect and promote Glasgow’s heritage today stand on the shoulders of some true greats that have gone before us, who worked tirelessly to establish the conservation movement we know today.

“Join us for a screening of our interview with Professor David Walker, a leading figure from the early days of conservation in Glasgow and Scotland, as we explore the huge amount of work that was done in the 1960s and since to protect Glasgow’s heritage and impress upon the people in power how significant it is to the city.”
