We also know that sometimes it takes a little bit of help from others with expertise and financial support to make things happen.
So after two successful years, our Streets Ahead campaign is back for another year and we want it to be bigger and better than ever.
The people will decide what they want to see done in their streets and how it can be turned into a brighter, cleaner and greener place to live.
And with the support of our partners City Charitable Trust, Glasgow Housing Association, Clean Glasgow, Scottish Fire and Rescue and ScotRail, Streets Ahead can help make it happen.
In the last two years, Streets Ahead has helped communities fight back after vandals have wrecked gardens, enabled environmental projects in schools and even given our own awards to the best of the campaigns that have made a real difference.
We want you to get involved by using the contact details on page 5 today and tell us your idea or project and together we can carry on changing Glasgow for the better, Street by Street.
