With over 150 submissions, Glasgow has really stepped up to show us what makes this Scottish city a great host for SMW. Glasgow debuted last September and hosted some very innovative events, like the Social Beer Tastings and Jeremy Gilley’s Peace One Day MeetUps for global peace. From their Scottish heritage to their beautiful architecture and art scene, we have loved seeing what Glaswegians have highlighted about their city. We think you’ll be inspired by it, too.

“It’s absolutely fantastic to see these pictures coming through, what I find fascinating is that the majority of them are not instagrams of the usual touristic spots; people are capturing moments and places of their own lives. It’s a window on how people who live in Glasgow see their own city. In every picture you can spot the attachment to their places, the everyday element, and you can actually feel how eager they are to share those places with the rest of the world.” — Daniela Castrataro, SMW Glasgow

Remember there’s still time to show us what you love about our host cities to win a chance to travel to any SMW September city for the week of September 24-28.
