  1. Once-a-week JAS conversation and connection meetup

    RSA provides space at John Adam Street for a half-day informal meetup once a week on the lines of http://tuttleclub.wordpress.com/ The only requirement on Fellows is that they spend some of their time on how to develop RSA networking for civic innovation. Staff commit to dropping in as well.

              • Collaborative leadership for the Fellowship

                Matthew Taylor's vision of a network for civic innovation inspired many of us in 2007. We now hear little of that - and it isn't clear how networking relates to overall RSA purpose. We need a new style of leadership (though not a new leader) which helps Fellows identify with and support overall RSA aims, and also contribute their own ideas within that broad framework. We need a clear invitation, and clear support.
