The 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?
In the Unlibrary and on this site each member has a space to create their profile – here you can tell us what you want to about your work, business and life. There’s a notice board where members can post messages. And a café where people can sit and chat. We also hold events, online and at the Unlibrary on social media marketing, digital writing and publishing. Like a library we’re a place where people can find out more both about your immediate locality and about the wider culture; you can promote your activities and ideas to neighbours, and to the rest of the world.
