The Delhi Flag Handover Cermeony

On Thursday, nearly 350 people will represent Glasgow as part of the Mass Cast performing at the closing ceremony of the #Delhi2010 Commonwealth Games.  10 students from my institution, Glasgow Caledonian University (http://www.gcu.ac.uk/newsevents/news/bydate/2010/6/name,11034,en.html), will be part of that Cast, either as performers (Cast Members) or as Co-ordinators.  Over 8 minutes, Glasgow’s place identity will be promoted to a watching audience of over 1billion people – who says the Commonwealth doesn’t mean anything anymore?  Well worth watching…

Glasgow Caledonian University is a registered Scottish charity, number SC021474

Winner: Times Higher Education’s Widening Participation Initiative of the Year 2009 and Herald Society’s Education Initiative of the Year 2009
