Exploring Understanding Glasgow

This film has been created to explain what can be found on the Understanding Glasgow website and to encourage people to explore the website for themselves. For example, we show how life and health in the city has changed over the last 200 years. We explore how health varies across the city and how health in Glasgow compares to other places.

The film looks at lifestyle factors like diet and physical activity, but also focuses on how poverty impacts on different parts of the city. It highlights other short films which tell people's stories in their own words. Community development projects that adopt assets-based approaches are also highlighted.

The film is intended to provoke interest and encourage people to consider how Glasgow may change in the future. What will the city be like in 50 years or 100 years time?
