Leading authority on creativity and innovation, Charles Leadbeater visits the RSA to present a powerful new model of social change for an age of austerity and ecological restraint – “frugal innovation”.

In a world of rising population, exploding demand among consumers on modest incomes and global pressure to minimise environmental damage, a wave of innovators and entrepreneurs from developing countries have shown that extraordinary technical and social advances can be achieved, despite scarce capital and resources.

Based around four key design principles – “lean, simple, clean, social”, frugal innovation promises to offer radical solutions to social challenges faced by organisations, individuals and communities worldwide.

We invite you to join us at the GTA to watch and discuss this exclusive talk over a light sandwich lunch provided. The session will close by 2.30pm.
