Govan: Thriving Place

PROJECT: Govan Thriving Places

In partnership with Galgael Trust and Govan Community Project, we have been invited to start a process of community conversations about the Glasgow City Council’s Thriving Places initiative, and how it might work for the residents of Govan.

With the Community Empowerment Act bringing new opportunities for communities, could Thriving Places provide a platform for collaboration and shared goals? If so, how could that work so that as many people as possible are involved in developing the plans for their community.

As part of this project we will be running a series of events, happenings and community film workshops to raise awareness about Thriving places, Govan’s Locality Plan and what “Thriving” means to the people of Govan.
