Augmented Society Network - RSA

Augmented Society Network

Constant change, fluid standards, and an ever evolving legislative environment are leading us down many different, and in some cases, conflicting paths. Join the Augmented Society Network to lift the lid on some of this century’s most important societal and technological challenges.

This network explores ideas, activity, and research, in an attempt to understand and influence the ways in which society is augmented now and into the future. We, as individuals and as connected networks, can and should have a greater impact on Society’s relationship with the technologies and systems we use - or are destined to use. Meant as an inclusive, considered and open forum to connect, explore and offer solutions, the network’s monthly virtual sessions have focused on subjects ranging from artificial intelligence to climate change, education, creativity, supply chains, values, and much more while leading to collaborative publications, policy guidance, global events and product development.

Combining a VR gallery with an IRL exhibition at RSA House, London, Zoë Camper FRSA, and Julie Samuels FRSA created the first hybrid art exhibition for UK and international RSA Fellows.

We welcome all members of society and are eager to make room at the table for provocative and enlightening discussions around what truly matters in our augmented world.

Reimagining learning

The co-leads of the Augmented Society Network, along with frequent collaborator Mitch Weisburgh, FRSA spearheaded an 8-month long project to reimagine learning.

Together with 30 collaborators from a dozen countries on each of the inhabited continents, the group published An Opportunity to Reimagine Learning in early 2021.
