The RSA event at Wilderness Festival 2016….
A bitter campaign, a shock result, social unease, political upheaval, and national soul-searching on an unprecedented scale.
The EU referendum of June 2016 will go down in the history books as a defining moment in our national story, and, for now, is casting uncertainty over every aspect of the UK’s social, political and economic future.
For many of us, it feels like the gap between what is happening around us and what we actually want for our country is huge and getting wider every day. We face a monumental task ahead to heal the divisions revealed during the campaign, and to begin to build a better future together for everyone. And so – the burning question: how do we make change happen?
Join the RSA’s Matthew Taylor and our expert commentators, including John Harris, The Guardian, Janan Ganesh, Financial Times, Emma Hogan, The Economist and Ben Judah, author of This is London, as they offer their reflections and take your questions on the campaign, the result, the fallout, and - critically - the way forward from here.
