Hidden Histories of the River Clyde Project
We partnered with University of Glasgow Centre of Sustainable Solutions on the Hidden Histories of the River Clyde project, which began in June 2021.
Glasgow was a hub of the Scottish and European Enlightenment. Later, it was the second city of the British Empire. Its global intellectual, cultural and economic network, together with its industry, shaped the River Clyde, and its peoples and local environment.
This network will establish new collaboration among arts and humanities scholars, earth and social scientists, local government, museums and community groups. The network will explore how the rise of empire and industrialisation shaped the River Clyde and its surrounding environment.
The project will also map the legacies of empire and industry on the Clyde and its communities in terms of contemporary environmental and social injustices.
The project made it to the finals of the Climate Challenge Cup - find out more www.climatechallengecup.com.
