The Scottish government has launched a seven-month programme of exhibitions, events and education

Scotland launches XX Commonwealth Games legacy programme

Led by Architecture and Design Scotland at The Lighthouse, Glasgow, Green2014, supported by Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and partners, the programme ‘will explore Glasgow’s successful bid, how the Games will have positive impacts for the city and country, and how the Games are meeting the highest environmental standards’.

Green2014 is intended ‘to give visitors a deeper insight into the environmental sustainability legacy of the XX Commonwealth Games’. It will include activities of interest to both the general public, through a flagship exhibition and a variety of open events, and to professionals through workshops and a professional development event programme.These latter elements will include an exploration of the venues and an opportunity to meet people connected with them through photographic essays; an introduction to the Legacy for Scotland and Glasgow’s 20 Greener Legacy projects – ranging from renewable energy infrastructure to urban bee keeping, and events designed to ‘bring the environmental legacy to life – whether through active architectural tours or fast-paced lunchtime talks’.
