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

We believe that relationships are the foundation for social change - relationships within organisations, across organisations, and between people with different amounts of power - including those whose voices are rarely heard.

"It’s informal, it’s dynamic, and what’s more, it’s free. Started as a fringe event to the Skoll World Forum, Marmalade is generating its own momentum. It’s run by and for social movements, providing a genuinely open space to connect, collaborate and share ideas around social justice and community participation, locally and globally. It is inclusive to its core - it’s not often you see a CEO and a volunteer baking bread together, but that’s one of the memories from last year." - Marmalade Volunteer
