Skoll Foundation revisits a conversation they had with Sean McKaughan, who chairs the board of Fundacion Avina, at the Skoll World Forum several years ago.

McKaughan provides insights on needing "social capital, diverse groups and coalitions of people and organizations to make these changes happen in a very complex context, and for assuring those changes last."
