Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games Legacy – An RTPI West of Scotland Chapter Event
August 2014 marked the close of the XX Commonwealth Games: the most ambitious of a programme of major cultural events that Glasgow has delivered to date. Four years later, as the inaugural European Championships kick off in the City, there is the opportunity to reflect on the legacy of the Games in Glasgow’s ongoing regeneration.
Hosting international multi-sport events can provide a short term injection of economic growth. However, balancing this with redressing social challenges and inequalities requires work that goes on well beyond the Closing Ceremony. New evidence suggests that the legacy aspirations of events must be embedded within longer term local and national strategies to succeed. Expert speaker, Forbes Barron of Glasgow City Council, is ideally placed to provide insight into how these aspirations have progressed within the City so far.
This highly informative event will appeal to planning, regeneration and other built environment sector professionals and anyone else interested in Glasgow’s ongoing regeneration journey.
Light refreshments will be provided. For full details, including how to book tickets, please see Eventbrite
