November 4, 2008
The Skoll Foundation announces that November 4, 2008 is the deadline for receipt of applications for the Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship. The Foundation is looking for social entrepreneurs whose work has the potential for large-scale positive change in the areas of tolerance and human rights, health, environmental sustainability, peace and security, institutional responsibility, and economic and social equity. Within these issues, it is particularly interested in applications from social entrepreneurs working in five critical sub-issue areas that threaten the survival of humanity – climate change, nuclear proliferation, pandemics, conflict in the Middle East and water scarcity. Award winners will be celebrated at the annual Skoll World Forum following their selection, at the end of March 2009 in Oxford, England.
