The RSA hosts one of the world’s leading public events programmes, delivering over 100 lectures, talks, screenings and debates a year.

These events provide a platform for our most exciting public thinkers, and encourage intelligent exploration of today’s most urgent social challenges.

Our public programme welcomes speakers from across the world and across disciplines – all united by a belief in the power of ideas to inspire and motivate social change.

All of the audio files are recordings of talks in our public events programme.
