Join us for the kick-off event of the 2018 Skoll World Forum!



In a world transformed by immediate digital connectivity, physical nearness—proximity—has never been more critical to crafting solutions and creating lasting social change. As we gather as a community, we’ll explore the tremendous power of proximity in our work. Through this lens, we’ll consider lessons from the past that may illuminate a course to a more peaceful, prosperous, and just future. LADAMA, a musical ensemble of women from the Americas who use their art to address gender inequality and celebrate humanity, joins us for a Pan-American performance.
