RSA Engage: Winchester - CANCELLED

Fellowship Event


Shakespeare Room, University of Winchester Business School (West Downs Campus)

  • Fellowship
  • Fellowship in Action

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.

Please note that this event has been CANCELLED with a view to rescheduling for early 2020.

Join us for RSA Engage in Winchester to spark new conversations, meet new people, and discover ideas that have the potential to become a powerful source for social change. Everybody is welcome to join us at this event, in partnership with Winchester Hub. 

RSA Engage provides a brilliant platform to ignite, share and support ideas for change.  At this event, a mix of projects on the theme of sustainability will be shared, followed by an opportunity to find out more from the people driving them forward and get involved, responding to each speaker's "call to action". 

If you are working on a learning initiative or project that’s aligned with the RSA, and you want to share and seek support from an informed and connected audience, apply for a (three-minute) speaking slot. 


APPLY TO PITCH HERE-The deadline for pitches has been extended. Applications close at 8am onMonday 25 November. 

If you have any questions, contactClaire Doran: RSA South East Area Manager, [email protected].


Location: University of Winchester Business School (West Downs Campus), The University of Winchester, SO22 5FT 



What is RSA Engage? 

RSA Engage is a series of 20 events hosted around the UK which provide a space to make new connections and enable us to showcase innovative local projects. Whether you’re looking to find out more about the RSA, get involved with an exciting project, or to network with like-minded people, RSA Engage offers something for everyone. 


What’s the format? 

RSA Engage is a mix of 6-8 lightning talks and facilitated networking. Each speaker finishes with a call to action, asking the audience to share their skills and experience to help further their project. Between project talks, there are short bursts of networking where you’ll be able to spark new connections and talk to the speakers about how you might support their work. This is an interactive, standing event, though limited seating may be available.

About Winchester Hub 

Winchester Hub was launched in January 2014 in partnership with the University of Winchester, an institution committed to student social action.  Winchester Hub is part of the national charity Student Hubs, which was founded in Oxford in 2007 and now has Hubs in universities across the South of England.  The organisation aims to mainstream student social action and work with the University and the local Winchester community to achieve this. 

Starting with Schools Plus, Impact International and the Social Impact Internship Programme, Winchester Hubs has quickly grown to offer 6 volunteer projects, regular one-off volunteering days and a range of training, events and campaigns for students to get involved with. Since September 2014, it has also delivered the Try It Awards, providing funding and mentoring for students with social enterprise ideas.
