Glasgow is a city filled with amazing cultural trends. It is known as the European Capital of culture. It is considered to be a leader in design and architecture. The Glasgow shows a great reflection of Scottish culture and it has achieved a higher rank in displaying the Scottish culture. The same is the case with the social aspects.

That’s the reason why there are more than 20 artistic museums in this city. In the past few years, the culture and social behavior of people of Glasgow have significantly changed.

Today, we’re going to take a look at the social and cultural trends of Glasgow that how they’ve changed over the past few years.

The design of homes

We’ve seen several significant changes in the home designs of Glasgow. The homes have become more beautiful and different from the past. In the past, people of Glasgow put all their focus on showing their artistic work in the form of paintings and different designs but know they’ve started showing their artistic skills in the home design as well.

Now, they’re using their artistic skills to give a new and unique look to their homes. The homes in Glasgow have become more advanced as compared to the past. They have also focused on making their homes more secure and safe from the past and they’ve done a lot of remarkable efforts for this purpose.

The popularity of double glazing Glasgow windows all around the world is a proof of their effort that how hard they’ve worked to improve the protection in their homes. Their homes still include some cultural aspects in them but the designs of the homes have become creative than before.

Social trends

The world has seen a great change in the social trends over the past few years. The same is the case with the people of Glasgow. After the online social media came into existence, the world has changed a lot and now the people of the whole world are socially connected with each other. People of Glasgow have taken great advantage of this latest trend and they’ve also contributed to building relationships with people from other countries and continents.

Thus, they’ve adapted a few things from different cultures and added them to their own culture due to which their social and cultural behavior has become apparently different from the past.

Glasgow has also contributed in making their historical places more valuable than before due to which many visitors are getting attracted to this city and a huge number of visitors are coming to see the historical places of this country.

They’ve made several changes to their travel and tourism and made it more comfortable for the visitors to reach the historical places.

Congratulations to Ken Bain, recipient of the 2010 Chief’s Award. During the Robert Burns Supper on January 22, 2011, Chief Ray McEdward honored Ken with a museum copy of the Declaration of Arbroath. Much to the delight of the Supper attendees, Ken was completely surprised and rendered speechless for a short while! Ken has been a member of the Scottish Society for many years and has held nearly every Board of Governor position, led several Highland Games Committees as Games Chieftain and continues to enthusiastically promote his love for Scottish culture every day. The entire membership and the 2011 Board of Governors extends their heartiest congratulations to this honored member.
