Join us to explore the diverse practices and perspectives within our RSA Living Change approach. These are the vital ingredients we all need as changemakers to tackle complex social and environmental problems.

In this monthly interactive events series, we share with you the perspectives and practices that the RSA and our Fellows are using to imagine and realise better futures for people, place and planet.

From long-term thinking to collective action, from participatory futures to regenerative design, join us to discuss the roles they play in our and your changemaking work.

At this event, Michelle Lord (Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Region of Learning Manager) from the Cambridge City Council will be joined by Tom Kenyon (RSA Head of Enterprise Design), Jahnvi Singh (RSA Senior Learning Designer) and Aidan Daly (RSA Researcher). They will share learnings from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Region of Learning, Skills and Opportunities (CPRoLSO) project, which is developing a lifelong learning infrastructure rooted in the needs of the learners and residents in a place. 

CPRoLSO is an ambitious, multi-year social mobility project that aims to provide a unified, place-based approach to improving skills and career outcomes, particularly for young people furthest from learning and employment opportunities. Through an integrated digital platform called XP, the project recognises and makes accessible both formal and non-formal learning activities and connects them into inclusive pathways towards opportunities to work and thrive. 

Grown from the RSA’s Cities of Learning model, our approach ties together three practices that are core to the RSA’s Living Change approach: evaluation, learning design, and systems thinking. We recognise that a lifelong learning ecosystem is co-created in place by engaging and empowering a diverse range of stakeholders through the right data and collaboration methods, and by building the capacity and capabilities of local leaders to facilitate and sustain transformative change in the place they call home.

Presentations from our speakers will be followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.

We welcome all changemakers who are interested from different fields and disciplines, within and beyond our RSA Fellowship community.

These are hybrid events: you can take part in-person or online. Join us on The Steps in The Coffee House – an opportunity to meet others and grab something to eat or drink before, during or after the event. Or connect to The Coffee House online, from wherever you are in the world, via Zoom.

Taking part in-person

We've been looking forward to finally being able to meet together in person. But we of course recognise it is important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone.

We’re asking all attendees of events to be respectful of personal space, to be mindful of others preferences in regards to social distancing and to respect those that are wearing face coverings.

To participate in the event, you will need to register for a ticket so we can make sure we have an up-to-date list of those who plan on attending. This is for capacity purposes.

We request that all attendees evaluate their own health and that of those they’re in close contact with. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home and to cancel your Eventbrite ticket if you are no longer able to join the event.

Given the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, please always check your latest national Government guidance in addition to following our baseline guidance enclosed here. If guidelines do change, the event may be cancelled at short notice.

For our interactive online events, the RSA uses the platform Zoom. It may be necessary to follow a short set-up process. To understand how Zoom uses your data, please read their Privacy Policy in advance.
