Global Challenges Retreat 2018
Co-Creating A Better Future
8th – 10th November 2018
eGrove Park, Oxford University
The Global Challenges Retreat (GCR) is a collective of entrepreneurs and social impact leaders working to address global and local challenges and to co-create a better future.

The GCR removes the key unknowns in social innovation by teaching a systematic approach that any social entrepreneur can implement to accelerate the rate at which they can produce the right innovations, articulate and communicate their unique value, attract congruent capital and scale their impact.

“If we can catalyse enough people to action we can succeed in creating a just, peaceful and sustainable world. Some of them will be musicians, some of them will be scientists, contractors, teachers, artists, builders – that’s the lovely thing about what we do – we don’t tell people what to do. We don’t teach them to meditate or pray or protest. We ask what moves you?”

Mac Macartney
