Delivering a Climate Resilient City through City-University Partnership: Glasgow as a Living Lab Accelerating Novel Transformation (GALLANT)

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow
Department Name: School of Geographical & Earth Sciences

Abstract

GALLANT's vision is to develop whole-systems solutions for a just and sustainable transition delivered at the city scale.

Corporate and political leaders are committing to carbon neutrality locally and globally, often without detailed strategies in place or coordination. This will likely lead to delays and suboptimal outcomes when we need rapid, impactful transformation. Cities are increasingly seen as drivers of a carbon neutral future (e.g., Carbon Neutral City Alliance) because through shared policy and knowledge exchange it is possible for successful action in one city to be adopted by others, creating scalable and rapid change. Glasgow is a model city to lead innovation because it has the UK's most ambitious carbon neutrality target of 2030; has challenging social and environmental inequities that will need to co-benefit
from proposed solutions; and is due to host COP26 in 2021.

Making meaningful, lasting change requires a commitment to the environment that embeds sustainability across major policy decisions and empowers communities as stewards of their local places. In GALLANT, we seek to work with local partners and communities to transform the city into a thriving place for people and nature.

Our overarching goal is to implement a systems-based science approach to solve five environmental problems that will accelerate Glasgow's ability to adapt to and manage climate change. The approach integrates natural science and social science disciplines, putting data at the heart of decision-making. We will create the Glasgow Living Lab, delivering a framework that will be readily deployable to solve emerging environmental problems that show how academic, public and private sectors can act together to make progress.

The five environmental solutions that we have prioritised with Glasgow City Council are:

1. Working to transform urban river-edge land-use governance to create functional floodplains and new accessible green spaces for community use.

2. Working to deliver biodiversity benefits from green infrastructure throughout Glasgow, restoring and connecting habitats using nature-based
solutions, and matching ecosystem service demand with provision.

3. Working to turn vacant, derelict, and polluted land into spaces for carbon sequestration and pollution remediation that can be returned to communities in line with local needs.

4. Working to make the most of current and planned infrastructure by understanding community perceptions of active and
safe travel, use these to increase inclusive urban active travel and mobility improving air quality and reducing CO2 emissions .

5. Working to maximise the value of Glasgow green-blue-grey spaces as a Smart Local Energy System that
bring heat to some of the most deprived areas of Glasgow.

Title Exhibition: Photo Mapping for GALLANT: Capturing Community Perspectives 
Description In 2023, members of GALLANT's community collaboration workstream - Co-Investigator, Dr Ria Dunkley, and Research Associates Dr Sarah Gambell and Dr Florence Halstead - at the University of Glasgow partnered with Open Aye, a participatory photography CIC, to embark on an impactful community photography project. This collaboration aimed to recognise & connect with sustainable community initiatives thriving in Glasgow. Over six months, Open Aye conducted a transformative five-week participatory photography programme involving 37 local community members residing in diverse Glasgow neighbourhoods, who actively participated in workshops resulting in over 12,000 photographs. These images provide a hyper-local view of GALLANT's core themes: Flood Risk, Biodiversity Loss, Vacant and Derelict Land, Active Travel and Inclusive Mobility, and Sustainable Energy. The exhibition is a narrative woven from local experiences with these GALLANT themes. Within this collection, you may encounter images reflecting diverse states of active travel infrastructure, dedicated efforts to repurpose vacant land, social inequalities, community gardens, & environmental activism. Each photograph offers a snapshot of the present, providing critical reflections on our current state & hope for a more sustainable future.

Funded by UKRI NERC as part of their Changing the Environment investment, University researchers are helping the city move towards climate resilience whilst tackling health, social and economic inequalities. GALLANT is using Glasgow as a living lab to trial new sustainable solutions throughout the city. GALLANT takes a whole-systems approach. While addressing the city's key environmental challenges, the programme will consider the co-benefits and trade-offs for public health, wellbeing, and the economy. GALLANT aims to deliver the social priorities of the UN Sustainable Development Goals while remaining within the planetary boundaries of a 1.5°C world - using doughnut economics as a framework. Mapping of Glasgow Vacant and Derelict Land (VDL) sites collating historical data, current data, geochemistry - potential use in VDL site selection.
Collaborator Contribution As the primary partner with University of Glasgow delivering GALLANT, Glasgow City Council have been involved since the bid writing stage. Council staff from a range of their departments are actively engaged in planning, information sharing and governance. Information on Glasgow City Council Vacant and Derelict Land sites of interest.
Impact Glasgow City Council have worked with us across all disciplines involved in GALLANT, providing data access and collaborating on data sharing protocols; providing access to vacant and derelict land for ecology-based and engineering-based research; and co-producing and participating in GALLANT's foundational City Portrait work, including workshops with Council staff and elected representatives.

Collaborator Contribution Provided membership of Community Collaboration Steering Group.
Impact Feedback: "I've been a member of the GALLANT Community Collaboration Steering Group from the first meeting, representing Glasgow Life's Arts And Music development team. The Steering group has allowed a deep understanding of this strand of GALLANT and where it sits within the wider GALLANT programme. It has been especially useful as we've been working on a long-term project with artists and arts organisations embedded with local communities for the last five years and have seen first hand how vital a community research project is to understanding the long term effects of community based work. The GALLANT team have designed a thoughtful project, the results of which will help inform the shape of our community work in future and the research aspect will be a great resource for the sector at large." "GALLANT has been part of the stakeholder engagement work around the Sauchiehall Street culture and heritage district development work, led by Glasgow Life on behalf of Glasgow City Council. GALLANT has brought a unique and helpful perspective with its transformational approach to sustainable urban solution within the consultation process. This process has only just started, and as we further develop a plan (towards a large National Heritage Lottery Fund bid) we hope to draw of GALLANT's ethos and approach further." "I was delighted to see that creative engagement was being used as part of the research and that the value of engaging with artists in work like this is recognised in the project. I know that people attending the Artists in Communities Sharing Practice event, where you talked about the work to date, found it interesting and were pleased to learn about the work. Hopefully there will be the opportunity to explore crossovers with GALLANT as we develop our climate focus in the Artists in Communities programme."

Collaborator Contribution Delivery and development of 1-2 activities (depending on complexity) for each of the five GALLANT work packages, together with training and resources for researchers and community practitioners to deliver themselves.
Impact Feedback from GSC: "The current partnership on the GALLANT community project has enabled us to change the way we usually develop learning programmes for families: We have benefitted from being able to engage researchers from the very beginning of developing activities, which has enabled us to create activities which not only give participants opportunities to learn, but also to understand how research and development is happening in their local area. The information the researchers and students provided has been included in both the journal resource and session plans for each work package. Participating in some of the activity around GALLANT's community research projects has been helpful to inform what local people feel is most important in their areas and how they would like to see these issues addressed. This isn't something we commonly see universities (or anyone else) doing consistently or effectively and so it has felt positive for us to be able to communicate this to our own participants. We're hopeful as these projects progress we'll be able to include more on how our groups might get involved."

Impact Feedback: "As part of our Community Advisory Group for the Planting Connection Project, Dr Ria Dunkley's advice has helped us during the first year of developing and delivering in: • Creating internal conversations about the language we are using to engage with communities. This conversation is still ongoing in different ways and is fundamental for our approach to engagement in this project. For example, consider using the word "conservation" and its colonial history-having more reflective approach when explaining that this might not be a neutral word for everyone, when using it with communities. Or thinking more on how to use it. Although this is a slow change and will require lots of internal dialogue, it has created interesting conversations, where change can start happening. • Advising of people on benefits and how they could be affected by payment, which made us think about how we could engage with this audience without creating more barriers. Taking in board this advice, for one of our activities, a paid traineeship aimed to reduce barriers, we decided to divide payments monthly instead of doing a one payment which was the original plan. This helped payment not becoming a barrier for people with benefits. • Providing example on how we could make tools more community oriented. One of them that we would like to use in the future if referring to how people use spaces. More tangible outcomes of the community advisory group impact could be seen with more time within the project. As this is a relationship we are starting to build with members, we are also exploring ways of relating with each other in a volunteering role like this one, which is new for us. In the future, we plan to share lessons learned and experiences by holding a community advisory group with Ria. This will help us seeing way to make it more impactful and meaningful for members and communities. So far, it's been essential to have a person within our members with this community and scholar expertise that allows us to explore and know discussions and tools used today in eco pedagogies and community engagement."

Impact Feedback from Sunny G: "Through knowledge and expertise of the GALLANT team led by Dr Ria Dunkley, I learned a lot about the Living Lab and Climate Action. With my work with local people in Govan with mental health, I was then able to share the work of Ria and the team with my carers /clients through informal updates / chat about the weekly workshops and photo walks. Information around flood risk was especially useful as many of my clients live at Riverside flats, and they have concerns about local flood risk from the Clyde and local flooding of pedestrian areas at Govan Cross/shops. Also these conversations have ranged across the GALLANT themes and community collaboration approach and themes, for example, my well being/arts work where we have been doing local walks for 5 years to greenspaces, e.g. Graving Docks and Clydeside. I was able to try and share some eco knowledge and pressing climate challenges, and potential solutions, shared by the expertise of Ria's team and our Phase 1 Govan participants' teams, pooling of local knowledge, ideas and skills input across the GALLANT themes! Ria's patient explaining of the community collaboration approach and of a Climate community sustainable solutions focus was very helpful. By then building on our Govan locals' knowledge and expertise went down really well with my mental health and wellbeing group as they felt heard too, by association as it were! A good example I believe of the valuable community impact of GALLANT's approach to community work. Ria's expertise in ecopedagogy and Sarah's creative support during photo walks and workshops was appreciated. I now have a much better understanding of local greenspaces / blue spaces, importance in Climate Solutions, especially the team's highlighting of derelict land, trees and biodiversity in Govan. Ria's sharing of the Spot a bee activity book resource is a good tangible example of the kind of local resources that could be potentially developed by locals in Govan during a Citizen Science project, to grow plant biodiversity projects along Clydeside corridors for Active Travel and biodiversity as Ria suggested, and which we spoke about on my wee radio show on Sunny G Radio in Govan. This community responsive team, led with patience and enthusiasm to encourage and document our communities participation through local Govan voices/knowledge/skills built confidence and teamwork, was appreciated and useful upskilling. Looking forward to phase 2 of the Citizen Science projects where more of the local knowledge and data can be gathered, answering hopefully some of the community questions and ideas gathered though Phase 1 during the great workshops around community focused sustainability solutions. Hopefully this will make a contribution to impact local decision making around Climate Action and local and city wide sustainability plans for present and future sustainable urban communities. Personally, the environmental expertise of Ria, for example in Govan Old Graveyard about lichens on gravestones and their connections with biodiversity, local ecology and bees increased my knowledge of the value and connections of cultural and natural environmental interactions in supporting biodiversity and clean air. Another example was Ria highlighting River Clydeside walks and green and blue spaces to increase biodiversity through Citizen-led science projects, with practical impact locally. This could potentially be through increasing air quality and local food production, supporting and underpinning a local Govan Climate Action plan supported by a collective stewardship, to protect our home places to pass on to future generations. Attending Phase 1, and soon Phase 2, has also changed my focus to highlight the work of Govan Community and participation through GALLANT on my wee local radio show the Community and Arts Show on Sunny G Radio. I would simply wish to thank Ria and her team for a great Phase 1 where we also made friends in our Govan group, and heard perspectives on local and Global Climate understanding, Climate Action, and the Climate crisis in informal conversations within the group facilitated by the GALLANT Community Collaboration team, and their carefully curated and informative themed workshops. Personally, it was nearness to River Clyde Riverside walks and the radio station Community resource, plus the heritage architecture, that drew me to live in Govan for last 5 years. So I'm totally delighted that we all get to participate and be facilitated by Ria's patient and knowledgeable leadership and community teamwork support team, including Sarah and Open Aye, to work on local sustainability solutions for our Govan Community! Loving the mapping especially and all the detailed curating of themed photos by Ria and her team which made our learning and knowledge exchange facilitation in my wee opinion Sing! Really looking forward to Phase 2 Citizen Science with this great and engaging GALLANT team and local Govan group!"

Climate change is with us and the window to mitigate negative effects is closing. Collectively, big steps and bold actions are required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and environmental destruction. Ensuring that policymakers have the right data and support from business, society and higher education is key to effective leadership, but leadership is different across the globe, from local, to national and international levels.

- Is there a model of effective delivery that can be used across all environments?
- What approaches are being adopted by business, society and higher education to support policymakers and what more can be done?

This panel explored examples from across the globe and what happens when policymakers have the ambition, data and support to make change.

Results and Impact Factors influencing spatial and temporal patterns of biodiversity along an urban-rural corridor, by GALLANT Co-Investigators Dr Thorsten Balke, Dr Davide M. Dominoni, and Dr Dominic J. McCafferty and GALLANT Research Associates Dr Anna M. Bracken and Dr Alejandra Vovides, with colleagues Jemma Guthrie, Léo Streith, Nancy Stewart, and Anna E. Nousek-McGregor. Urbanisation is increasing across the world and there is growing appreciation of the role urban environments play in supporting biodiversity. The aim of this study was to examine spatial and temporal patterns of riparian biodiversity across an urban-rural corridor. They predicted that biodiversity would decrease from urban to rural areas, but seasonal changes in biodiversity would reflect differences in phenology within urban habitats. To do this they used passive acoustic monitoring to determine biodiversity indices for riparian habitats. Soundscape analysis revealed both spatial and temporal differences in biodiversity between urban and rural areas, but these differences were also strongly influenced by habitat type. This work therefore highlights that patterns of biodiversity within cities are not simply explained by the urban-rural gradient, but that quality of these fragmented habitats is key to supporting biodiversity in cities.

Results and Impact Investigating plant-pollinator networks in urban gardens. GALLANT Co-Investigators Dr Thorsten Balke, Dr Dominic J. McCafferty, Dr Davide Dominoni, Dr Ria Dunkley and GALLANT Research Associate Emma Plant . Private gardens in urban areas provide habitat for diverse pollinator communities. However, gardens have a high abundance of exotic floral species which may destabilise pollination networks, impacting pollination services, and reduce the abundance of rarer pollinators. Previous research in this area has focused on morphological pollinator groups. The aim of this research was to compare plant-pollinator networks in 18 gardens representing high and low urbanisation across the city of Glasgow, Scotland. They employed two methods to measure plant-pollinator networks. Firstly, they used cameras to record plant-pollinator interactions and secondly, we collected pollinators on plants. Both methods were used on one representative plant for each plant species identified along stratified transects. They obtained 74 hours of video recordings containing at least one plant-pollinator interaction every ten minutes. Overall, they demonstrated a novel methodology to measure pollination networks and a standardize approach to assess complex and varied garden habitats. They are currently analysing the results related to network stability and pollinator diversity, which they presented in their contribution.

Results and Impact Assessing the ecological connectivity of urban areas to improve biodiversity. GALLANT Co-investigators Dr Thorsten Balke, Dr Davide M. Dominoni, and Dr Dominic J. McCafferty, GALLANT Research Associate Dr Anna M. Bracken, and Teaching Fellow, Dr Luca Nelli. Blue and greenspaces in cities are vital in supporting biodiversity. To maximise their effectiveness, enhancing the ecological connectivity between these spaces within urban areas is essential. Assessing functional wildlife corridors for a range of species can be challenging, though with the growth of citizen science recording schemes, the presence and/or absence of a variety of species is becoming widely available. This study aims to integrate citizen science datasets with habitat suitability and connectivity modelling to determine urban ecological connections appropriate for a range of species (e.g., mammals, birds, insects, plants) with different habitat requirements and dispersal capabilities. They presented the results of this work, based in Glasgow, UK: discussing techniques used to correct for both inherent biases in citizen science data and for behavioural variation across taxa, and highlighting important habitat variables to consider. The intention is that model outputs will contribute to the practical conservation of species in urban habitats.

Results and Impact GALLANT Co-Principal Investigator, Prof Marian Scott, presented a session at The International Environmetrics Society (TIES) conference 2023. The presentation was part of a series on Environmental digital twins, 'Environmental data evolution and revolution- what can we achieve?'.

ABSTRACT. How we generate environmental data is changing and continuing to evolve, which means also that the complexity of environmental systems can be studied in greater depth, and hidden connections can be explored. It also means that statistical methods need to evolve to deal with new data streams. It is in this landscape, that we often see, terms such as digital environment, digital twin, and digital earth describing the system we are studying. Focusing on digital twins, a digital twin is defined as a virtual representation of real-world objects or systems; in the environmental context, it can also be phrased as a Digital Earth which is an interactive digital replica of the entire planet that can facilitate a shared understanding of the multiple relationships between the physical and natural environments and society. There are at least three parts in the digital twin: • a model or nested models of the system. We might ask what type of model, how are they being coupled, how is uncertainty represented and quantified? • an evolving set of data relating to the object. There are many questions we might imagine, including what is the sampling frame for the data collection or how do we integrate real time and historic data and • a means of dynamically updating or adjusting the model in accordance with the data. A digital twin needs and consumes large volumes of rich and highly heterogeneous data often from sensors. It needs to bring together data driven and process modelling, and it takes a whole system approach. Ultimately it enables a decision pipeline that runs in real- or near real-time ( data acquisition and analysis, model execution, uncertainty quantification and visualisation) that supports the decision-making process. We present a discussion of some of the statistical challenges in developing a digital twin.

Results and Impact The Thriving Glasgow Portrait was launched in Glasgow's Kelvingrove Museum. The Portrait defines a collaborative vision of what Glasgow would look like if it was a 'thriving city' in terms of 44 social, ecological, and economic dimensions. Researchers at the University of Glasgow in partnership with Glasgow City Council and C40 Cities have been using the Doughnut Economics framework, which aims to meet the needs of all people within the means of the living planet. The Portrait is the first step in the Thriving Cities Initiative, which Glasgow joined at COP26 in November 2021. The Doughnut Framework has allowed stakeholders across the city to consider the interactions and impacts of a wide range of social and ecological dimensions at the local and global scales. This has created a diverse, multi-dimensional picture of Glasgow's current and new ambitions for the city's sustainable future.

The event was introduced by GALLANT Co-Principal Investigator, Prof Petra Meier, and included a panel discussion chaired by Dr Elaine Heslop, Honorary Fellow (School of Geographical and Earth Sciences), University of Glasgow. The panel comprised of the following speakers:

Cllr Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of the Glasgow City Region Cabinet
