About Opening Lecture: Faith and Reason in the Smart City

Chair Professor Stephen McKinney

5.30pm book a place and enjoy wine reception. Dr James Macaulay vote of thanks, Mediaeval Glasgow Trust

6.00 -7.00pm Lecture PROFESSOR Robert Davis

Urban Change & Smart Cities look at perspectives of emerging from mediaeval cathedral town into the reformation stronghold, the enlightenment and commercial industrial metropolis. I will look at neglected role of Religion in the Smart City Dynamic and reflect on the proposition that “Faith” needs to be added to the Eds, Meds and Feds if we are to understand the secret of the sustainable cities past, present and future.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Opening Lecture: Faith and Reason in the Smart City are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
