RSA Watch: Radical Help

Fellowship Event


University of Cambridge Postdoc Centre (Sanders Hall)

  • Fellowship

Join us in Cambridge for RSA Watch – a live screening of a talk by internationally acclaimed innovator and social entrepreneur, Hilary Cottam at RSA House in London, followed by discussion with local Fellows.

How should we live: how should we care for one another; grow our capabilities to work, to learn, to love? Hilary Cottam’s new bookRadical Help: How We Remake the Relationships Between Us and Revolutionise the Welfare State shares a new design for the welfare state, and a new way of working, powered by human connection.  

After her talk, Hilary Cottam will be joined in conversation by award-winning journalist Gary Younge to explore the principles behind this radically new approach, the design process that makes the work possible and the challenges of transition. 

After the screening, there will be an opportunity for Fellows to comment, and to share their own experiences and ideas. The evening will draw to a close with some informal networking.  

Drinks and snacks will be available.
