The Clyde Mission have launched a digital Call for Ideas seeking views from those who work, live, travel or contribute to the areas within the footprint of the Mission. The Clyde Mission seeks to recognise and use the Clyde as a national, strategic asset. The geographic footprint of the Mission covers the river and land immediately next to it (around 500m) along the length of the river, from the Lowther Hills through to the opening of the river between Gourock and Dunoon.
They want to ensure that key agencies, businesses, community groups, individuals and other groups who live and work along the river are made aware of the call.

Overview Of Clyde Mission
The River Clyde has a distinct place in Scotland’s economic and social history and a strong sense of identity and place. It played a key role in the industrial development of Glasgow and Scotland and now has the potential to play a key role in Scotland’s economic future and the transition to net zero.
The Clyde Mission is a national, place-based, mission to make the Clyde an engine of sustainable and inclusive growth for the city, the region and Scotland. It has defined Missions to:
- Create new, good and green jobs and a workforce with the skills to secure those jobs.
- Use vacant and derelict land for the benefit of the economy, the environment and communities.
- Adapt to climate risks, especially flooding.
- Accelerate Scotland’s progress to net zero.
- Use the river to create better places for people and communities.
