Andrea Coleman
Riders for Health

 
 
 

‘Closing the gap: tackling global health challenges’ was the final session I attended for the 2014 Skoll World Forum. It showed that important discussions happen here right up  to the last moment. The session, led by Peggy Clark of the Aspen Institute, looked at why the critical issues of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and mental health continue to be neglected, despite their importance and growing threat to populations.

Stanford Social Innovation Review

In 2012, the forum’s theme was “Flux,” signifying the unstable and uncertain environment in which most social entrepreneurs operate. Last year, the theme was “Disruption,” signifying the recalcitrant spirit of social entrepreneurs. This year, the theme portrayed a newfound maturity and confidence that wasn’t present in past years: “Ambition.”
