In 2018 the RSA will be embarking on an ambitious project to create an enlightenment coffeehouse, one which fosters the creative thinking and collaborative action needed to address the challenges of the 21st century.

Our vision

Our vision is for the coffeehouse to be a place where individuals become part of a greater movement for social change. We want it to be a natural home for anyone who wants to change the world, enabling people to connect, share knowledge, collaborate, and build new communities to tackle the social challenges of our time.

This is an exciting development in the story of the RSA and I very much hope that the Fellows of the future will look back at the creation of the 21st century enlightenment coffeehouse as a pivotal moment in the RSA’s history.
