Robert Owen Commemoration Lecture
Robert Owen Commemoration Lecture - New Lanark: The Future
with Scott McCauley, Chief Executive of New Lanark Trust
This event is sponsored by the Friends of New Lanark, in association with The Open University in Scotland.
The Friends of New Lanark, in association with the Open University are delighted to announce that the 2017 Robert Owen Commemoration Lecture will be delivered by Scott McCauley, New Lanark Trust’s Chief Executive.
Since joining the organisation in August 2016, Scott and his team have developed an ambitious outline vision to secure the future of New Lanark as a financially self-sustaining, world class tourist destination as well as continuing the early ethos of the Trust to maintain New Lanark as a living and working community, not only an interpretation of its significant past.
Scott’s lecture will outline the Trust’s vision for the future and the strategy that will lead to the next stage in New Lanark’s remarkable journey, following its period of extensive restoration in the 1970s - 1980s and its rapid growth as a tourist destination in the 1990s – 2000s. Scott will also discuss the recent developments that are already beginning to shape the future of the village including implementation of a prestigious Exhibitions & Events programme and the importance of improving access into the village.
New Lanark Trust is the independent charity responsible for the restoration and regeneration of the historic mill village. Its companies, New Lanark Trading, New Lanark Hotels and New Lanark Homes, carry on the site’s traditions of enterprise, manufacturing, renewable energy production, education and social housing, and together employ around 165 local people.
