Glasgow 2020 project is run by the thinktank Demos []

Gerry Hassan is the head of the project.

According to the website the aim of Glasgow 2020 is to "discover the non-institutional story of Glasgow’s future - a project to collect-together the imagination of the city through workshops, competitions, events and creative-projects."[1]

The project was in part funded by the Glasgow City Council who were very dissapointed with the results. Council leader Stephen Purcell said "Bizarre would be a charitable way to describe some of the report's conclusions, What on earth is meaningless nonsense such as assemblies of hope', alchemists' or mass imaginings'?"[2]
