New Lanark

The 102nd Scottish Esperanto Congress (15/18 June 2007) is divided between the ancient town of Lanark, and New Lanark which is only a couple of kilometers away.

New Lanark is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has gone through an incredible restoration and now is used for various appropriate functions.

It was, of course, the place where Robert Owen carried out his Socialist experiment; so it is much more than 18th century cotton mills beside the river Clyde.

It is a place where a Utopian community functioned for the benefit of the workers and the local community. This experiment worked economically: an unusual occurrence!

Come to the Congress, and savour this extraordinary place; you will not regret your decision!
