Capabilities for Life Faculty Members

The Capabilities for Life faculty group is comprised of dedicated learning facilitators and visionaries from around the world.

The mission of both the faculty and the RSA is to transform the way capabilities (skills, behaviours, mindsets and values) are nurtured, focusing on connecting people’s needs with those of the planet.

Over the summer of 2024, they will be working with our Design and Innovation team to co-produce engaging and inclusive learning experiences that will support learners of all ages to nurture the capabilities, capacity and collaborations needed to affect deep and impactful change to people, place and planet.
