This September, join RSA Ireland online to hear more about the recent work and fascinating research done by RSA Fellow, Derick Wilson, and explore the freedom of individuals to ‘nurture hope’ in our social circles and communities.

Earlier this summer, Derick attended our Fellows online meeting and those of us present were really interested to hear more about his work, it’s international significance and how this work can be applied in our own lives too.

Derick has been developing a reflective educational resource supporting diverse citizens and members of civil society groups meet together respectfully and explore how to promote trust and an openness to the ‘different other’ in family structures, friendships, workplaces, civic, public, social, economic and political life. Through nurturing relationships that promote freedom and trust, and critically reflecting on those that reinforce rivalry and conflict, readers and group members are invited to examine how their relationships can free new opportunities between people.

At this online event, we will hear from Derick to learn more about this resource and how it can be applied. Then for the remaining 30 minutes, there will be time for attendees questions, critical feedback and deeper conversation around this model.
