Regeneration of Waterfront Heritage Zones and Community Participation:
Lessons from Glasgow, Govan and Gdansk
Symposium, Govan, 7-9 June 2015

Organized by the University of the West of Scotland’s Creative Futures Institute, School of Media, Culture and Society, in association with RSE-funded
Interdisciplinary and Cross-Institutional Research Network Regeneration and Waterfront Heritage Zones in Northern Europe

This network for knowledge exchange, funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh,  focuses on exploring participatory approaches to waterfront regeneration in urban spaces in transition in Northern European cities. The main case studies of regeneration focus on Govan (Scotland) and Gdansk (Poland), each of which are dealing with the consequences of the post-industrial demise of the shipbuilding industry, trying to find a transition into a new economy and community. The network’s objective is to contribute to Scottish government policy initiatives aimed to encourage community empowerment and to identify pathways to successful planning initiatives regarding waterfront regeneration and participatory planning for the public realm, as well as build a platform for further research and exchange between civic leaders, activists and academics in Glasgow and Gdansk.
