Speaker information

Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive, Royal Society of Arts

The Royal Society of Arts (RSA) has a new strapline: 21st century enlightenment. This pays tribute to the 18th century founders of the Society and to the pioneering spirit which inspired them. It makes a statement about the role the RSA can play today, as an organisation established over 250 years ago but which believes its best days may yet be to come.

At the heart of the RSA's contemporary mission and public debates about the future prospects for the human race is the question ‘can we go on like this?’ Will the ideas and values which transformed our world in the last two centuries be sufficient to find solutions to the challenges we now face or do we need new ways of thinking?

At this event Matthew Taylor from the Royal Society of Arts will discuss all this and more.
