You + Laptop + MissingMaps = Making a Difference
The principal objective is to map the most vulnerable places in the developing world, in order that international and local NGOs and individuals can use the maps and data to better respond to crises affecting these areas.
Collaborate with others and map the world a better place …
… so please remember to book your place at the Project Café 🙂
There is a proposal to build yet more student accommodation on the site currently occupied by Jumpin’ Jaks.
What has been proposed raises significant concerns about the quality of build to be placed right next to the Mackintosh Building. These are some of the developer visualisations:

If you or your family are looking for something interesting this weekend then find out what is happening on The Hill and around the city. There are walks, tours, and access to buildings that are otherwise closed to the public. This year’s participants include Tenement House, Garnethill Synagogue, Cowcaddens Fire Station, and the GSA Reid Building to mention just a few — but there are hundreds of other organised activities to choose from!
See the full brochure:
and also the list of activities specifically for children:

This is your city — make the most of it!
Botanic Concrete have developed a new website for sharing community actions and tools for re-imagination. The website will not only record the events and initiatives proposed and led by Botanic Concrete’s participants, but also will provide directions for how to adapt these tools for future uses and with other communities.
Come along 6pm Thursday 8th September for a free community dinner to welcome the website and share your own ideas for its future!
This month’s event is Sunday 4th September 2016 and the plan of action is:
- meet at the Garnethill Multicultural Centre (GMC) on Rose St
- time 2pm – 4pm
- afterwards coffee eg CCA
Unfortunately MacDonald’s helpers can not manage this time but hope to offer their services again in October.
Margaret has lots of bulbs and seeds for us to plant.
And we can also discuss our plan of action for the next few months.
Feel free to feedback any ideas.
Please let your neighbours know in case they want to join us!

The Garnethill Community have been invited to come in and help decide some potential designs to be taken forward to the City Council.Many thanks to Alexander Mackinson and Alice Grant for arranging this.
