RSA Events


The RSA hosts one of the world’s leading public events programmes, delivering over 100 lectures, talks, screenings and debates a year. These events provide a platform for our most exciting public thinkers, and encourage intelligent exploration of today’s most urgent social challenges. Our public programme welcomes speakers from across the world and across disciplines – all united by a belief in the power of ideas to inspire and motivate social change.

Over the course of the last year, the pandemic and Black Lives Matter movement have exposed deep fault lines that show us how much work there is still to be done to make our societies equitable. At the same time, we are witnessing increased momentum for change, with individuals, communities and organisations embracing opportunities to tackle disparity through design, innovation, experimentation and renewal.

In the final event in our RSA Living Change season, we talk to four pioneering changemakers who are working to address imbalances in our social and economic systems, innovating, testing and iterating to create meaningful change for the better. From supporting organizations to shift practices to end white supremacy, to empowering women and girls in developing countries through STEM education and employment opportunities, these are stories of community collaboration, frontline innovation, and system re-design building more diverse and inclusive societies.

The RSA has been at the forefront of societal change for over 250 years. Our proven Living Change Approach, and global network of 30,000 problem-solvers enable us to unite people and ideas to understand the challenges of our time and realise lasting change.
