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, RSA staff Mehak Tejani (Education Systems Lead), Benny Souto (Collaboration and Change Designer) and Hannah Breeze (Researcher) will share how they have adopted systems thinking, convening, and participatory practices to enable more inclusive education systems as part of the RSA’s Preventing School Exclusions project.

One year in, we have gained learnings and experience in...

  • Undertaking and presenting research that shows a comprehensive view of the system
  • Convening multiagency partners with different priorities and perspectives towards a common goal
  • Ensuring that the voices of those for whom the system exists – in our case, children and young people – are present at the heart of decision making

We also welcome RSA Fellow Colin Michel (Interim Strategy & Partnerships Lead with Birmingham Children’s Partnership), who brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in transformation and strategic partnership work with education, local government and third sector. With his newly published Adolescent safeguarding in London: A handbook for collaboration, Colin will discuss with us his reflections on what is needed to enable systems change.

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.
