About the RSA
The RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce): an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges. Through its ideas, research and 27,000-strong Fellowship it seeks to understand and enhance human capability so we can close the gap between today’s reality and people’s hopes for a better world.
Bringing great ideas to global audiences, cutting across traditional political battle lines, carrying out cutting-edge research and development projects, undertaking practical innovation itself and by mobilising the talents and commitment of its 27,000 strong Fellowship: in this way the RSA is becoming the kind of organisation this century urgently needs.
The RSA is registered as a charity in England and Wales no. 212424 and in Scotland no. SC037784
