Anchored by our flagship event, the Skoll World Forum, Skoll Week in Oxford provides a platform for leaders and innovators to accelerate social progress. Ecosystem Events are independently organized and independently run during Skoll Week in Oxford, hosted by a single organization or partnership between organizations with a common goal. Ecosystem Events provide an opportunity to address emerging issues and solutions through deep engagement with Skoll World Forum delegates, members of the host organization’s broader network, and/or members of the public.
