Britain’s Northern Superpower: Building a Greater Glasgow

Along with Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham, Glasgow is one of the “big four” UK cities outside London, capable of becoming a global hub for tomorrow’s growth sectors.

Joined by some of the UK’s leading economic thinkers, and former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, we will use this event to discuss the ingredients Glasgow needs to become a significant engine of growth for the Scottish and UK economies.

Glasgow today has an economy that is underperforming the European average for growth and productivity and has a smaller voice within both the British and Scottish growth debates than a city of its stature should. How do we turn this around?

Glasgow needs a bold and ambitious plan to build its economy, ensuring increased prosperity is shared equitably across all communities in Glasgow, especially young people and those on the lowest incomes.

We will only achieve our goals if we work together

COP26 demonstrated once again that we cannot make change happen in the world without making it together. That’s why we’re calling for a COP UK to:

  • Agree common regulatory pathways
  • Distribute resources fairly, to support a fair transition across the UK
  • Bring together devolved authorities and nations, so that we can commit individually and collectively to carbon targets

Add your name and back our call for a COP UK.
