RSA Birmingham Fourth Industrial Revolution: Call for Guides

Impact Hub, Birmingham

  • Fellowship

Join us on 1 February at Impact Hub Birmingham to explore living in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This event will focus on health, social care, and housing.

In 2018 we will be exploring and learning from ways in which entrepreneurs, innovators, makers, and citizens in and around Birmingham are responding to advances in technology that together herald the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).

From the Internet of Things to biotechnology, Big Data analytics to 3D printing, artificial intelligence to energy storage, 4IR will challenge long-held assumptions about the ways in which we live, work, and learn, and even the meaning of value and reward.

How can we make sure 4IR responds to our most important human needs and contributes to outcomes that really matter?

Our quest to find some answers begins on Thursday 1 February, 6pm-8pm at Impact Hub Birmingham, with an event designed to explore living in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The journey continues on:

  • Wed 21 March, 6pm-8pm at Impact Hub Birmingham (Making -- focus on design and manufacturing)
  • Wed 23 May, 6pm-8pm at Impact Hub Birmingham (Eating – focus on food production and consumption)
  • Wed 18 July, 6pm-8pm at Impact Hub Birmingham (Working and Learning – focus on skills, education, and training)

Do you have a project, idea, or innovation to share at any of these four events (or an idea for other themes we may explore in the future)? Could you be a guide for this adventure? You might wish to show a video, host a conversation, make a micro-presentation, pop-up an exhibition - anything that you feel will help navigate a way through this fast-changing landscape.

If so, we’d love to hear from you: please contact Area Manager Abigail Campbell by 5pm on Friday 12 January.  

If you have any access requirements or require any reasonable adjustments, please let the team know: 

This event is being held in association with Midlands Environmental Business Company.

Location: Impact Hub, Walker Building, 58 Oxford St, Birmingham, B5 5NR
