RSA networks

The RSA’s Fellow-led thematic and local networks explore, devise, test or pioneer ideas which have the potential to become a powerful source of social change. 

If you can't see a network near to you below, visit your local area page to find out about other opportunities where you are based. If you wish to start activity in a new location, see the RSA Networks Guidelines for clarity and support on this.

Alternatively, contact your RSA Area Manager or networks@rsa.org.uk to discuss this further. 

It has been a wonderful experience sharing what we are most passionate about, finding like-minded Fellows who are interested in similar themes and mindsets, and each meeting brings with it a great learning opportunity.
