The world as it is: fragile, unbalanced, degenerative. The world as it could be: resilient, rebalanced, regenerative. Explore with us how particular perspectives on challenge and change can help build flourishing futures for people, places and the planet.
In this interactive events series, we share insights from the RSA’s Design for Life mission, including six perspectives we consider core to regenerative change: systemic, imaginative, adaptive, collective, long-time and local to global. How might we invite these perspectives into all our work to transform our economic, social and environmental systems to be more conducive to life?
We spotlight where these perspectives are being applied within a range of work-in-progress ‘interventions’ by the RSA, as well as by our Fellows and partners to imagine and pursue better futures. Join us to discuss what we’re doing, what we’re learning, and what shows up in your own changemaking work.
At this event, Joanna Choukeir (RSA Director of Design and Innovation) and Tom Stratton (RSA Chief of Staff) will share more about the story and history of our Design for Life mission, how the RSA is currently working to deliver on that, and what impact might look like.
Guest speaker, RSA Fellow Charles Leadbeater, will discuss his paper co-authored with Jennie Winhall FRSA on Resourcing Systems Innovation. The RSA’s mission has drawn inspiration from this paper, particularly in relation to shifting systems to be more regenerative, by re-designing the flows between our economic, social and environmental systems.
Presentations from our speakers will be followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.
