Event description

Description

In 1942, William Beveridge identified five main social challenges plaguing British society, which would become the focus of the modern welfare state: squalor, ignorance, idleness, want, and disease. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Beveridge Report, the RSA’s research team travelled across the country to determine the areas of most concern to contemporary British society. With unerring consistency, participants highlighted the same issues: inequality, disempowerment, isolation, intolerance, climate change. These are the New Giants, shared challenges faced by Britain and the rest of the globe.

Join RSA Fellows in Oceania and elsewhere as we explore the causes and consequences of these wicked problems, and discuss what a new social settlement to tackle these issues would look like. The third event in this online series will focus on isolation.
