About Marmalade

Marmalade is the informal, dynamic, free and open-access fringe event to the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship.

The core of Marmalade is user-centred content, generated by participants, focused on tackling intractable social and environmental challenges.

In-depth workshop formats, typically one or two days long, foster community, friendship and real-world outcomes.

Building on the changes we made last year, our aim is to provide a place where collaborative working meets intractable social problems; where people come together to accelerate efforts to make the world a better place; where problems that were previously stuck are unlocked through collective effort.

Marmalade is powered by you, and your passion for change. Join us in Oxford in April 2017!

Make Marmalade your Marmalade...

Get involved!

Get involved in 2017 by running your own event over the course of the week. Use our main venue, the Old Fire Station in Oxford, or pick your own in Oxford or further afield.

We'll assist with event production and will promote your event or session through our networks.

You'll pay what you can afford, in keeping with the founding principles of Marmalade.

Get in touch to get the process rolling.

Come on in...

The water's lovely!

To run Marmalade we need cash and serious talent committed to working in-depth and leading issue specific collaborations over the course of the week.

Whether you’ve supported Marmalade before or are new to the party, we are asking for you to contribute what you can to support us. You could contribute to the event as a whole or to one of the collaborations.

If your bag is design thinking or you are interested in running an in-depth collaboration then get in touch. You’ll have to pay to play, so to speak, but only to the level you or your organisation can bear.
