RSA Breakfast Club is a weekly opportunity to meet other Fellows and start the day with a purposeful conversation.
Grab yourself some breakfast and coffee to fuel an informal conversation around the Fellowship table discsussing a social challenge, an idea or a project. The perfect antidote to the mid-week slump - breakfast with a side of enlightenment.
If there is a conversation you'd like to start, please get in touch with Alice, Rawthmells Events and Programme Manager, with a short description of your topic as well as some dates that work for you.
Location: Dr Cross room, Rawthmells Coffeehouse, RSA House, 8 John Adam Street, WC2N 6EZ
The dates for 2019 are:
Wednesday 13th March
- Please note that Breakfast Club will not take place this week.
Wednesday 20th March
- Join Rob Hayles FRSA who will be introducing a project he is working on called Psychologically Informed Environments. The project looks at how we can inform and influence the built environment rather than how it dictates our mood and health, how we can map that using medical and contextual technologies, and then how we can use immersivity to inform planners, architects and designers. Crucially the project explores health in cities as well as healthy cities. Rob has a methodology but would like to know what you think, what you would change, and what you could bring to the project.
Wednesday 27th March
- In a 100-year life we have to change careers many times – do we know how? Individuals and society are increasingly realising that we will likely work well into what was previously considered retirement age. At the same time the world of work is changing at breakneck speed. This means that we will have to change careers multiple times during our lives. Most people – particularly above age 45 - do not know how to change jobs, let alone careers. Can we avoid major personal and societal tragedy by helping individuals understand how to change careers? Join Anita Hoffmann FRSA for breakfast to discuss why this is important, how organisations – and society - should handle the ‘later career’ question, and whether career development skills should form part of our education or corporate curriculum.
Wednesday 3rd April
- What will the aging experience be like for women in 2050? Biological aging is said to begin at 25, but as life expectancy increases, women are "staying younger" for longer physically (in appearance), socially, and psychologically, while certain biological symptoms of aging have stayed the same (e.g. 51 as average age for menopause). Yan Chen FRSA will be asking: how might we bridge that gap and challenge the perception around aging and taboo topics related to women's health? We will discuss some challenges that may come with aging for women, and take a quick dive into how technology could facilitate better aging experiences.
Wednesday 10th April
- Paul Hitchcock FRSA will be starting a conversation about the integration of health systems and paradigms to support sustainable health.
