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.
The closing date for applications is Thursday 29th August 2019. Support and advice for shaping your three-minute call to action will be available before the event.
Planning to attend? Please click on 'book now' for a free ticket in advance. Speakers will be announced shortly.
Location: The Melting Pot, 5 Rose St, Edinburgh EH2 2PR
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ENGAGE SERIES
RSA Engage events are a mix of short project pitches and facilitated networking. Each speaker will close with a call to action, encouraging the audience to share their skills and experience to help or get involved in some way. In between project pitches, there are short bursts of networking where you’ll be able to meet new people and talk to the speakers about their ideas. 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 30,000 Fellows.
