In 1754, William Shipley founded the RSA with a belief that the creativity of ideas could enrich social progress. Over 250 years later, we’ve taken inspiration and developed a series of Engage events across the UK to engage with, encourage, and support our Fellowship community to turn their ideas into action.
Join us at RSA Engage in Edinburgh to discover and support projects that are tackling 21st century challenges, make new connections within the local Fellowship network, and contribute to the mission of the RSA.
A mix of ideas will be pitched, followed by an opportunity for you to ask questions, find out more from the people driving them forward and volunteer your support.
A CALL TO ACTION
RSA Engage provides a brilliant platform to ignite and share your ideas. If you’re working on a project that’s tackling social, economic or environmental challenges and you’d like to seek support from an informed and connected audience, apply to pitch here. Applications will close at 10am on Wednesday 29 August.
Support and advice for shaping your three-minute call to action will be available before the event.
Planning to attend? Please register a free ticket in advance.
RSA Engage is an interactive, standing event, though limited seating may be available. Drinks will be available on arrival.
If you have any questions, access requirements or require any reasonable adjustments, please contact Jessica McMorrow: [email protected]. Also let us know if you have any dietary requirements, or severe allergies.
RSA Engage events are a mix of short project pitches and facilitated networking. Each pitch will conclude with a call to action, encouraging the audience to share their skills and experience to help further the project. In between project pitches, there are short bursts of networking where you’ll be able to spark new connections and talk to the project pitchers about how you can support their work. There will also be opportunities to find out more about the RSA, our main areas of work, and how you can engage with our network of 29,000 Fellows.
RSA Engage is free to attend and open to anybody interested in finding out more and supporting the work of the RSA.
