Green New Deal: Glasgow

Day: Thursday
Time: 7-8pm
Booking Necessary: Yes

Join us for an interactive lecture presented by Architectural Association Ground Lab and the Common Wealth Think Tank in imagining the implementation of Green New Deal policies in Glasgow in 2030. The project envisions a future for Glasgow in three scales:

CITY-SCALE
New networks of green and blue insfrastructure are proposed for flood resilience, while bringing people closer to nature and transitioning to alternative energies.

STREET-SCALE
‘Away with the Cars’ policies increase the space for pedestrians, public transport, green infrastructure and green community business.

TENEMENT-SCALE
retrofitting ensures that social housing has proper insulation and energy saving mechanisms to improve inhabitants’ health, and introduces shared communal facilities for maintenance, food production and community leisure.
