Running in parallel to The Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship in Oxford, OxfordJam is a three-day fringe event that creates a space for the nurturing of social economy and social finance projects the world over.

For five years OxfordJam has provided an innovative, inclusive and truly participatory environment for individuals and organisations from all corners of the social economy. Every April OxfordJam has played host to a wide range of topical discussions throughout its three days, on subjects from the impact of ageing on our economy, through (re)valuing women in our investments, to how to create an Amazon.com for rural African farmers.

While it’s not the most recent video (which you can find here), below is the video made in 2012 that we think best explains what OxfordJam is about.
