This report describes an Urban Health event held in The Lighthouse on Thursday 24th October, 2013 involving 31 participants from a variety of health, council, governmental and community sector organisations. In the event, the “Glasgow Game” was played to explore ‘how Glasgow could become a more connected city’.  The game is an interactive way for a group to engage collectively and creatively around important issues facing the city.  

Using data describing the city and its people from the Understanding Glasgow website, participants explored current trends in the city, identified possible shocks to the system (e.g. a recession, welfare reform, a fuel crisis) and what the key concerns arising from these shocks would be.

At the end of the event, participants made 12 declarations, setting out actions they considered essential for Glasgow to become a more connected city. 

A short film of the event was also produced which can be accessed below:
