Skoll World Forum 2016: "Fierce Compassion"
Skoll Foundation

March, 2016

On April 13–15, 2016, nearly 1,000 top innovators from more than 60 countries will come together for the Skoll World Forum in Oxford, England for three days of debate, discussion, networking, and design to accelerate entrepreneurial solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.
This year’s theme is Fierce Compassion.

Social entrepreneurs and the innovators who help them solve the world’s most pressing problems embody "fierce compassion." They don’t just rail at what’s wrong, they strive to make it right. They imagine a world of peace, sustainability, and shared prosperity and are unrelenting in their efforts to see that vision realized.
