Some of the Work Your Associate Membership Will Support
Free Guided Walks
We are starting to run guided walks from Water Row in Govan, along the Riverside to the Graving Docks, to tell some of the story of the post industrial environment of the waterfront. The walks will have particular focus on the story behind the campaign to save the historic A-listed graving docks and the emerging proposals for the future of the derelict site.
Govan Graving Docks
We are handing our primary role relating to Govan Graving Docks over to the dedicated Govan Docks Regeneration Trust charity. We are working with other stakeholders and the community to build the role of the Trust as it develops proposals for the public areas of the site. 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.
Clyde Archive
We will be building a photographic record of the maritme and heritage assets and environment along the length of the Clyde. This will provide a baseline from which future changes (caused by development or environmental factors) can be observed.
Clyde Festival
We are developing plans to introduce a summer-long Clyde festival programme, with a maritime heritage focus, that will bring various independent activities and events together and encourage new ones to be launched throughout the Clyde and Firth of Clyde region. We hope to launch this from 2019 or 2020. More...
Sail Cargo
The use of small wind-powered ships to transport good by sea is making a comeback as a way to reduce CO2 emissions from shipping, with both 'traditional' styled ships and new innovation. We aim to promote development of a sail cargo hub on the Clyde and see significant potential for this to contribute to Scotland’s climate change targets. More...
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.
