And So It Begins: The 2008 Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship
For the second year in a row, OnPhilanthropy will be blogging throughout the 2008 Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship, held at Oxford University. This year’s theme and line-up of speakers promises to top even last year’s amazing event. For the next three days, I’ll be reporting on the discussions and debate surrounding "Culture, Context, and Social Change" and lectures and speeches from social entrepreneurship rockstars including Al Gore, Paul Farmer, Jeff Skoll, and many other luminaries in the field.
Check back often for updates from the front lines at Skoll as we explore the relationships between philanthropy and social entrepreneurship from a global perspective.
