Student Hubs’ conferences are your first port of call if you want to learn about and be inspired to tackle the greatest challenges we face. We bring together the pioneers of social enterprise, global development, sustainability and youth leadership with the next generation of leaders, consumers and decision-makers – that’s you.






Emerge engages and connects university students and young professionals aspiring to drive transformational change with current global change-agents leading entrepreneurial ventures, businesses and sector-defying organisations. Emerge is about “what’s next”: the big ideas, the future leaders and the driving forces challenging the status quo. It brings to the forefront that which is emerging: new models, markets and movers of transformational change.

Over the two-day gathering, participants learn from leading global entrepreneurs about their innovations to address some of the world’s most urgent challenges. Emerge centres on learning and action; it is a space to gain skills and resources to launch a new venture, to design intrapreneurial or entrepreneurial career pathways, and to provoke new ideas for creating a more sustainable world. The event is co-designed and co-organised by Student Hubs and The Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School.
