New Lanark: Robert Owen’s educational legacy

New Lanark Trust will be hosting a special anniversary conference marking three important milestones in the World Heritage Site’s history:

• The 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Owen, the site’s most famous advocate;
• The 20th anniversary of UNESCO World Heritage Site inscription,
• The completion of the restoration of the former millworkers’ housing in the village.

Join virtually or in-person from 12th-14th October 2021 to celebrate New Lanark’s remarkable journey, from Robert Owen to World Heritage and beyond: legacies of social reform and heritage-led regeneration. SEAS are contributing to Tuesday morning session on Owen’s educational legacy to Scottish education, considering how good was his socialism and to what extent was he a transformative educator?
