The RSA - Digital Ecosystem
FRSA digital explorers Oct 28
Matthew Taylor's blog This morning I chaired an event in a packed Great Room to launch an RSA report on the scope for large retailers to be active contributors to community life. It is easy to see corporate responsibility as a marginal issue in comparison to the big questions of public policy. Also, as the report focussed in particularly on one initiative – Asda’s community life programme – the research could be seen as public relations flim flam. But having read the report and chaired the event I think the future of retail sector and its relationship to local communities is significant and am reassured that the RSA and Asda have flagged up some of the significant challenges ahead for what we term ‘community venturing’. There are 46 million retail transactions in the UK each day.
#RSABeyondGDPOur politicians are hung up on keeping the growth curve rising. But does GDP really tell us all we need to know about a country's wealth and well-being? In this new RSA Short, Kate Raworth makes a powerful argument to look beyond economic growth alone for a true measure of prosperity and progress. Kate Raworth is a renegade economist teaching at Oxford University, and is focused on the rewriting of economics to make it a fit tool for addressing the 21st century's social and ecological challenges.

Royal Society of Arts, London The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) is a British organisation committed to finding practical solutions to today's social challenges. Based in London, it is usually known as the RSA or Royal Society of Arts for brevity (including on the building's frieze — see photograph). The Society was founded in 1754, was granted a Royal Charter in 1847, and the right to use the term Royal in its name by King Edward VII in 1908. RSA

Whole Education - Introduction - Who we are Whole Education is a partnership of like-minded schools, organisations and individuals that believe that all young people should have a fully rounded education, developing the knowledge, skills and qualities needed to help them thrive in life and work. Education should be much more than examination syllabuses, national tests or the national curriculum so Whole Education encourages everyone involved in education to look outside the narrow confines of these externally imposed constraints. The government is giving schools new curriculum freedoms. Now is the time to re-think the curriculum and ensure that all young people have access to the right blend of knowledge and skills. If you agree with us about the purpose of education then why not join us?

Design for All is about ensuring that environments, products, services and interfaces work for people of all ages and abilities. Many professionals and students are interested in this, but there has been no easy source of information, methods, tools and examples to help them achieve it. This website aims to plug that gap by bringing together new and existing information and making it accessible via a single user-friendly interface.
