The Power of Food Waste to grow a “Sharing Community”
A global startup that has leveraged food waste to bring communities together and save the environment – hear it from Elis from OLIO!
Our speaker for the session is Elis Joudalova, Head of OLIO Market Growth for Sweden.
Olio app connects neighbours with each other and with local shops so surplus food and other items can be shared, not thrown away.
OLIO has won many tech, sustainability and impact awards and recently it was recognized at the United Nations Climate Conference (COP24) by winning the UN ‘Momentum for Change’ climate action reward.
Elis and her team of now 66 volunteers have changed the attitudes to food waste and brought the Jersey community closer together via the power of food sharing. In just 1,5 years the OLIO app is now being used by over 8% of the entire Jersey population and it has had many positive environmental and social impacts.
Elis is now in Stockholm with the hope of recreating the Jersey success locally with help of Coompanion Stockholm and other players in social innovation and sharing economy space.
