Matthew Taylor - Pro-Social Behaviour

Matthew Taylor

Pro-Social Behaviour - the Future: it's up to us

In his first full lecture since joining the RSA as Chief Executive in November 2006, former Downing Street adviser Matthew Taylor has opened up a new avenue of action for the RSA programme department.

Entitled Pro-Social Behaviour - the Future: it's up to us, and featuring contributions from Minister for the Third Sector Ed Miliband and Professor Stephen Coleman of Leeds University, the lecture was presented to a full house in the RSA's Great Room on 7 February 2007.

Emphasising the power of socially accepted norms in shaping the way we behave as a society, and advocating a more citizen-centric approach to government and social change, the lecture gave a strong indication of the broad society changing issues that Matthew Taylor clearly wants the RSA to engage in under his leadership.
