We are living in the century of the city.

For the first time in human history more people live in cities than the countryside - by 2050 it could be 70% of the global population.

Scotland's Urban Age is a major research project commissioned by Burness Paull and delivered by Glasgow Urban Laboratory at the Glasgow School of Art to provide businesses and public sector decision-makers with new insights into Scotland's principal cities, and to stimulate debate and discussion on their future roles and prospects.

We hope this report will inspire you to play your part in the debate on how we can all contribute to helping shape Scotland's AGE cities.
