About the speaker

Lily Cole is an actress, social entrepreneur and founder of Impossible People, a social network that encourages users to exchange skills and services for free in the hope of encouraging a peer-to-peer gift economy.

With a double first in History of Art from Cambridge under her belt, an ex-model and actress Lily became an ambassador for a whole host of charities, set up environmentally friendly knitwear company The North Circular, was hailed as one of PETA’s ‘sexiest vegetarians’ and was awarded an honorary doctorate by Glasgow Caledonian University for her outstanding contribution to humanitarian and environmental causes. Having written a book on the concept of impossible utopias, Lily founded Impossible - a global community that facilitates a gift economy by encouraging people to share their time, skills and objects in order to make the world a better place.
