FUTURE GLASGOW: Press Release Issue Date: 16/01/2012
Last chance to voice opinion on 'Future Glasgow' as public consultation begins
Glasgow City Council today (16 January) began its public consultation on the Future Glasgow project.
Future Glasgow will deliver a new vision for the city, looking forward 50 years to 2061 with some additional focus on the period 2014 - 2025. The project will provide a basis for public policy and investment in the city for decades to come.
The public consultation provides the opportunity for all citizens, business and organisations in Glasgow to express their thoughts on what they would like the city to become over the next five decades.
Thirty public events were held between April and June 2011 to engage with a wide range of people across the city and find out what they want Future Glasgow to be like.
Not only were the public invited to participate, we also invited key professionals who live within Glasgow to assist the Future Glasgow team, and develop the engagement outcomes into a draft vision to be published in autumn for public consultation.
GLASGOW PUPILS GET INVOLVED
On 21st April as part of the Future Glasgow project, and in conjunction with the launch of the wider public consultation exercise around the city, pupils from five of Glasgow's schools came to the City Chambers to present their visions of what life in Glasgow will be like in 2061 to Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council.
This event sought to understand the aspirations children and young people have for the future of their city. A number of Future Visioning exercises were carried out by the pupils to help them consider Glasgow now and in the future, and to develop their visions for Glasgow in fifty years. These exercises produced visual and written material, recorded interviews, and a short play. The thoughts, concerns and ideas produced will be fed into the city vision to help guide direction, policy and investment.
