On Wednesday 7th October, as part of the 255th AGM and first meeting of the Fellowship Council, RSA Projects are discussing their work and findings with RSA fellows. Between 1.30 and 2.20 pm I am running a session on the work I am undertaking and setting up at the RSA, with a specific focus on our work in Peterborough.

On Wednesday 7th October, as part of the 255th AGM and first meeting of the Fellowship Council, RSA Projects are discussing their work and findings with RSA fellows. Between 1.30 and 2.20 pm I am running a session on the work I am undertaking and setting up at the RSA, with a specific focus on our work in Peterborough.

The idea is for the session to be an informal and participative discussion. It offers me the opportunity to introduce myself and my work. But more importantly the objective is to use the session to open up a long-term dialogue with fellows and to encourage their participation from the beginning.

How to develop democratic engagement and deepen civic behaviour are complex issues that require innovative and practically-grounded thinking and strategy. The session will be of little value to passive observers. I want it to be an active and energised discussion with everyone involved challenged (and challenging one another) to outline ideas and solutions for addressing important issues such as these.

Having been at the RSA a very short time, it is already lucidly clear that I am working for a fantastic organisation - an organisation that has boundless potential. Part of this potential is inherent within the relationship between RSA Projects and our fellowship. We need to find a better way of harnessing and utilising this potential. These sessions are a good starting point.
