Every year we organise a range of events seeking to catalyse deep exchanges with a global community of innovators: we connect social entrepreneurs with thought leaders and key players in business, government, and philanthropy to enhance social impact.
Our main annual events are:
Our flagship social innovation conference for you to learn about the ‘what’s next’: the big ideas disrupting and challenging unjust systems and practices.
It brings together a community of those who are driving transformational social change, and those who want to get involved. At Emerge, you can explore new ideas, dig deeper into issues, and immerse yourself in the innovations which are redefining our world.
Skoll World Forum
The Skoll World Forum is the premier international platform for advancing entrepreneurial approaches and solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. The purpose of the event is to accelerate the impact of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs by uniting them with essential partners in a collaborative pursuit of learning, leverage, and large-scale social change.
This event is run by the Skoll Foundation. The Skoll Centre hosts the event at the Saïd Business School annually running its own events alongside it, such as lively Oxford Union debates on social impact education.
Student Ticket Fellowship
Each year, the Skoll Centre allocates a small number of full delegate tickets to eligible Oxford postgraduate students. For the 2019 Skoll World Forum taking place from 9 - 12 April, applications are now open.
