The Most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury delivers the first in a series of keynote addresses by leading public figures responding to the RSA’s annual theme of COURAGE.

In 2024, in a time of overlapping global crises, it’s clear that radical courage will be required of us as individuals and as a society - in our communities and institutions at local and national levels, and not least among those in public life - if we are to make decisive progress on our interconnected economic, environmental and social challenges, and create truly just and flourishing futures for people in the places, and on the planet, they inhabit.

That will require at least two things: the willingness to step out of our comfort zones and into the storms and waves, to protect the poor, the vulnerable and nature itself, and a clear sense of where to find the resources beyond ourselves to discover that courage.
