In the British education system, black students and educators are faced with the challenge of navigating a system of learning that has been designed white as default. Minority ethnic teachers are still under-represented in all lanes of education, routes into education lack focused training on structural racism and unconscious bias, and exclusion rates for mixed white and black Caribbean boys continue to be disproportionally higher than that of white British boys.

Across Britain, people of all generations are being priced out of homeownership, shut out of social housing options, and required to find a home in the private rental sector. Recent decades have seen this sector reshaped by Right to Buy, Buy to Let, divestment in social housing and deregulation, creating a situation where rents are rising faster than incomes and landlords hold more rights than their tenants. Combined with the lasting impact of the pandemic and the rising cost of living, Britain...

The debate around whether we should eat animals has historically been the domain of an ethically minded minority, but with the recent surge in vegetarianism and veganism, it is now posed every day on restaurant menus, on supermarket shelves and at the family dinner table.

In an age where the internet has rendered us all hyper-visible, how does shame play out in our public and private lives? Shame is a powerful emotion and a potent social force. It can assert collective values, hold power to account, and uphold the social good – but shaming has also taken a dangerous new turn. Huge sectors of the economy are built to capitalise on our wishes to live up to certain ideals, targeting those – often the powerless and vulnerable – seen to be falling short. The...

r versus g? Or a Debt Jubilee? David Graeber’s bestselling book “Debt: The First 5000 Years” revolutionised our understanding of the origins of money and the role of debt in human societies. But intellectual revolutions take time, and David’s sudden and untimely death left this revolution unfinished. David’s widow Nika Dubrovsky has established ‘The Fight Club’ to keep David’s unique way of challenging conventional wisdoms alive after him. Each ‘Fight’ will pit leading...

How can we make progress together when faced with increasingly complex challenges? The major challenges of our time demand creative and collaborative solutions. But they’re not always easy to come by: we face increasing complexity and, often, decreasing control. We need to work with people across more divides. How can we move forward in ever less straightforward situations? Adam Kahane presents transformative facilitation as a new way of creating change. By focusing on removing the obstacles...

How did the world become addicted to fossil fuels? How did we discover that electricity may be our saviour? Who first sounded the alarm bell for climate change, and how could we seemingly ignore all these papers from the 1960s or 1970s musing that “if” we didn’t do anything, climate change could worsen significantly after the year 2000? As we look forward to COP26, Alice Bell takes us back to explore the earliest signs and causes of climate change in the eighteenth and nineteenth...

Success is no longer about individual talent, knowledge or skill. Success is about freeing ourselves from the blind spots that beset us all, and pooling our collective intelligence. In our latest RSA Short, best-selling author and columnist Matthew Syed shows where the best ideas come from and how we can apply these ideas to tackling the biggest challenges of our age. Individual intelligence is no longer enough, he argues; the only way to tackle complex problems is to harness of the power of...

What is fear costing you? Your career; connection with others; believing in yourself? Fear is part of all of our lives but left unchecked it can drive many negative emotions and hold us back from finding fulfilment. Fear of failure, inadequacy and rejection can make us jealous, self-critical or turn us into perfectionists. Cultures of fear in the workplace, in family relationships and in friendships can undermine intimacy, honesty and creativity. In a life ruled by fear we strive for success...

Where are the opportunities for young people navigating an era rife with challenges? Studies show that many of the social and economic consequences of the pandemic have hit younger people the hardest, in a time when many were already facing adversity. Declining living standards, heightened insecurity, and deepening social divisions are changing what work, home, education, and community look like for younger generations – but young people are resourceful and resilient, and should have a voice...

The goal of the RSA Future of Work Programme is to ensure good work for all. We put forward five good work principles that unpack this idea: security, wellbeing, growth, freedom and identity affirmation. Many grassroots innovators are helping to make this idea a reality, from training boot camps that teach workers at risk of automation how to code, to FinTech start-ups providing workers in the gig economy with access to portable benefits. But in order to have a lasting impact on people’s...

Rethinking Education III - Beyond the School Gates: the role of schools in the wellbeing of communities   Throughout the pandemic, schools have played a central role in the wellbeing of local communities, especially in the most disadvantaged areas. School leaders have provided high quality and safe learning environments, reassurance for staff, parents and students and maintained critical relationships with other key providers of support for the health and well-being of children and families....

As nation-states grapple with generation-defining issues from the Covid-19 pandemic to the climate crisis, what role does civil society play in addressing the issues of our time? For the first time since President Biden took office and the UK left the EU, the G7 countries will come together at the 2021 summit in England to discuss the pandemic, prosperity, climate change, and shared values. But without support, solidarity, and citizen engagement, these ambitions for a better world will come to...

Now, after two years of cancelled exams, public dismay at algorithmic blindness to the true nature of student achievement, and after millions of the most disadvantaged children have missed out on key learning milestones, there has never been a more critical time to question our...

The more we spend time with people unlike ourselves, doing things together, the more understanding, tolerant, and even friendly we become. And yet, increasingly, most of us spend less and less time with people who are different - as defined by age, race, or class, earning power or education. The pandemic may have forced us apart, but it also reminded us of what we share and value. We witnessed the power of community, connection and common cause. And we saw clearly the urgent work that needs to...

What if women’s untapped power to make change was harnessed to fight the climate crisis? Climate change affects us all globally – but it does not affect us all equally. Vast social and economic inequities mean we don’t all contribute to the climate crisis to the same degree; nor are its effects evenly distributed. Racialised women are the most likely to suffer the consequences of climate change, which they have done the least to cause. Meanwhile, women are marginalised in the spaces where...

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.

Imagine if this theory was simple enough for anyone to understand, yet nuanced and practical...

Government policies in response to the Covid-19 pandemic have reignited the universal basic income (UBI) debate, showing us the vital lifeline that income support can provide. In the US, Congress has distributed nearly $850 billion through three rounds of stimulus checks. In the UK, the furlough scheme and self-employed income support schemes have helped millions to keep their heads above water. But these measures are temporary and specific, so what can they really tell us about the viability...

If the way we give to those in need reflects on our values and virtue as a society, what do we see today? Charitable giving has grown in response to the huge areas of need that the Covid crisis has exposed and intensified, in the form of mutual aid groups, donations, and volunteering. How has this changed our communities, our public values, and the ways we help one another? Writer and development expert Paul Vallely is joined by philanthropic activist Sir Bob Geldof and charity director Fran...
