In March 2011, JRF held a day of debate – 'Our Changing World' – to:

  • consider what big issues need answering by 2015 and beyond,
  • gather and share insights about the changing context in which organisations such as JRF/JRHT operate, and
  • consider what current and future forces may affect their work.

In this opening presentation, JRF Chief Executive Julia Unwin outlined some of the key challenges. You can listen to Julia's speech on the day below.
