Emily Oliver

Schumacher Network Community Manager

Emily brings people together through networks to realise positive social and personal transformation. Her experience ranges from launching peoplefund.it (which went on to become the UK’s largest ethical crowdfunding platform, Crowdfunder), to co-founding one of the UK’s first community-owned surplus food cafes. She has worked with a number of communities including the River Cottage forum, Good For Nothing, and energyshare. A digital idealist, she keeps one foot firmly in the real world working as a meditation guide, forest school leader and artist. She is currently exploring how networks, praxis and critical pedagogies realise critical consciousness and positive change.
