RSA Oxford: What is the glue that drives human connection?

Fellowship Event

  • Fellowship
  • Fellowship in Action

Join us for a panel discussion and open forum on ‘What is the glue that drives human connections’?

This is the second in a series on Diversity, Inclusion and the Environment, built around the ‘5 New Giants’ identified by the RSA: Inequality, Disempowerment, Isolation, Intolerance, Climate change.

Loneliness is recognised as one of the UK’s most dangerous health issues, and on top of this, a recent survey shows it is the younger generation who are the loneliest. What is it that connects our communities, and how have we become so disconnected?

A panel of local Oxfordshire leaders including Renee Watson, founder of The Curiosity Box, will discuss loneliness and the role of technology, then pose questions to us to help form possible mechanisms to transform problems of isolation and loneliness locally. 

Bring your own experiences and knowledge, and help develop potential solutions to the problem of loneliness in Oxfordshire today.

The October meeting continues the series and discusses ‘Plastics in Society: How can an individual, consumerism and science make an impact?’

Location: Blake Morgan LLP, Seacourt Tower, West Way, Oxford, OX2 0FB
