From smart canals to interactive performance venues, the Storymap gives residents and COP26 attendees the ability to create their own personalised walking tour of key sites that are helping the host city reach its ambitious goal of net-zero carbon by 2030. Many are a part of the Sustainable Glasgow partnership - an initiative aiming to encourage Glasgow businesses to adopt more sustainable business practices.
The interactive map can be picked up at any point in the city, dividing it into three areas that can be discovered on different days.
Visitors will be able to explore a diverse range of projects from rapid electric vehicle charging stations, to living roofs on bus stops, to the Sustainable Glasgow Landing - a pop-up venue next to the River Clyde which, during COP26, will play host to local and global organisations.
Accompanied by a bar over the weekends, The Sustainable Glasgow Landing will feature displays and performances to showcase how we can respond to the climate emergency. From vertical farming to robots delivering your crops to active travel solutions, everyone is invited to explore the exhibitions and rest their weary feet after a long day exploring all that the Storymap has to offer.
Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council said: “This exciting Storymap will allow locals and visitors alike to enjoy all that our city has to offer during COP26.
“The work of the Sustainable Glasgow partnership will play a crucial role in achieving our climate ambitions and I'm delighted to see the Storymap showcasing the variety and depth of the initiatives in development across the whole of Glasgow as we look to reach net-zero carbon by 2030.
“We are proud of what we have achieved to date and look to showcase all that is still to come to ensure our "Dear Green Place" is ready to adapt to the climate crisis which remains a global, national and local priority.”
A key aim of COP26 is for nations to re-affirm their commitment to net zero if we are to keep the global goal of limiting warming to 1.5°C within reach. As we continue to recover from the pandemic, Glasgow looks to continue the legacy from its hosting of the climate conference as an exemplar city for Scotland and the UK, making a tangible reality out of the ambition for a green recovery.
