Forum attendance is by invitation only.
We at the Skoll Foundation believe in the power of convening as an opportunity to shape and amplify the work of those dedicated to accelerating new ways of thinking about global social progress. Each year, we select 1,000 delegates from more than 65 countries to gather in Oxford for the Skoll World Forum. Our selection process strategically aligns delegate invitations with annual programming themes and connects community members from all sectors who share a passion for driving change on the critical issues of our time.
In recent years, about half of delegates are practicing social entrepreneurs and the remainder are senior representatives from finance and philanthropy, academia, business, media, the arts community, and beyond. Each year, demand to attend far exceeds our capacity at the Forum. To learn about other events in and around Oxford during the Forum, read here.
The 2017 Skoll World Forum fees are below, determined by the sector in which delegates work. There is no ‘early bird’ registration.
All fees will be charged in US Dollars, plus 20% VAT. VAT (Value Added Tax) is a form of consumption tax. Per the UK government, because the event takes place in England, we are required to charge 20% VAT for each registration purchased for the Forum. Some delegates may be eligible to obtain a refund of this VAT from the UK government by submitting a valid claim within the statutory deadline.
