Reflecting on Lockdown and the Importance of Open Space
Across the world, cities have seen residents, particularly those without access to a private garden, gain a renewed appreciation for publicly accessible open space in their local neighbourhoods.
When Covid-19 lockdown measures were introduced in Scotland in March 2020, restrictions on non-essential travel meant that many of us were confined to our local area for exercise and access to essential facilities.

This lecture by RTPI West of Scotland Chapter will explore the hidden history of open spaces across the city, whilst highlighting the invaluable contribution they make to life in Glasgow.
