We need a solid base camp from which to map new routes forward for humanity. One that’s built on a shared understanding of how core human needs and motivations interact with social forces to shape and drive the dynamics of change.
In this new RSA Minimate, RSA chief executive Matthew Taylor introduces ‘co-ordination theory’ – a set of ideas about what motivates us and influences the ways we act together - from authority, values and belonging to individual aspiration and fatalism.
This framework, he argues, can help us not only diagnose the critical challenges currently facing us - in our communities, workplaces, and public institutions - but develop new ways to tackle and solve them.

Following my last introductory blog post, over the next few blogs I will explore a set of ideas by looking at how they might apply to us as individuals, to organisational culture and change, to policy, place and ideology.
