Some of the Work Your Associate Membership Will Support
Turning the Tide On the Clyde
Our Turning the Tide On the Clyde project is all about how the River and Firth of Clyde could be better connected and more active as a diverse maritime region. A lot of our smaller project concepts have been consolidated into the Turning the Tide On the Clyde - such as looking st sustainable shipping and potential for a broad activities programme to celebrate the Clyde. Find out more on the project website at
Govan Graving Docks
We have handed our primary role relating to Govan Graving Docks over to the dedicated Govan Docks Regeneration Trust charity that we founded. We are continuing to support the charity as it undertakes a broad consultation/conversation with the local community about the future of the A-listed dry docks. In addition our wider research & development activity will continue to address Govan Graving Docks as a case study and the Trust will be able to both feed into and directly benefit from our research.
What is Heritage?
We aim to create a wider understanding of maritime heritage as being not just about history and museums but more importantly also about contemporary and evolving culture, activity, technology and sustainable development.
Building Connections
We are looking at ways to connect the reindustrialisation of the Clyde with the communities along the river, how we connect it with the leisure and tourism potential of the region and how it can encourage innovation and learning.
Research & Development
Research & development is core to our activity and how we work to develop a better understanding of how maritime heritage relates to other issues, such as sustainable development, and how it can continue to develop in the 21st Century. We are very much concerned with a modern definition of heritage as opposed to just looking at the history.
