Here's what is happening this week in the not-so-sleepy little town of Oxford, England.
Skoll World Forum 2010. Since 2004 the Forum has brought together the many worlds of social entrepreneurs. Running from April 14-16, by invitation only, the Forum includes widely recognized speakers, selected delegates, and Skoll Awardees for 2010 and years past. Follow the Forum on Twitter at #swf10.
Oxford Jam - a conference "in relief." April 14 - 16. Free and open to the public, in parallel to Skoll World Forum, at the Oxford Jam Factory. Organized by Ben Metz, formerly of Ashoka. This will be good. Twitter at #oxfordjam
Oxford Internet Institute policy forum on Unleashing the Potential of e-Philanthropy. I'm honored to be the keynote speaker for this event, which will draw from the Disrupting Philanthropy paper and the Open Philanthropy manifesto. In preparation I've been brushing up on the UK social sector, British English, and British brands. (Check out hwayoungjung's Flickr set.) Will post slides, etc. after the plenary and events on April 14. Twitter at #OIIphil
