Welcome to the RSA

About us

We're a charity with a unique mission - to create a 21st century enlightenment, enriching society through ideas and action.

We believe that powerful ideas can help solve today's biggest social challenges. So we research and gather the most exciting ideas from around the world and make them available to everyone, everywhere, for free through our events and videos.

About us

What we do 

We bring together the most exciting new ideas with a global community of innovators, free-thinkers and the insatiably curious - for real social change.
