Location: New Theatre

Join us for the kick-off event of the 2015 Skoll World Forum! Jeff Skoll, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Zak Ebrahim, and others will help us explore this year’s theme: ‘Belief.’  In the face of huge obstacles, constant setbacks and a system set at status quo, remarkable individuals are determined, each day, to make personal sacrifices for the betterment of a more equitable and just global society.

Our opening plenary at New Theatre begins at 5:00 pm and doors open at 4:30 pm. Seating is general admission. Stewards will guide you to New Theatre, a 10-minute walk from the Saïd Business School.
