About the Speaker:
Eva Jarlsdotter is Founder and CEO of Lean@home AB, owner of Daughter of a King Publishing and founder of Jarlsdotter Media, and TEDx speaker. Previously, she served as Vice President at TeliaSonera and Communications and CSR Director for AstraZeneca. She was also a news reporter at TT and daily press. She has studied at University of Journalism and the Stockholm School of Economics, where she was one of the first to do a thesis in CSR, and served on the board of SE Forum (Social Entrepreneurship Forum). She began her career as a journalist. After almost a decade in journalism, she left to work in global management roles in communications and corporate social responsibility, in the telecom and life science industries. Then she resigned from her position as Vice President in an international telecom company to complete a fiction trilogy. At the same time, her family started to implement lean in their home. Today she is the pioneer of the lean@home concept. She currently works as a social entrepreneur, author, advisor, and speaker.
About the Talk:
According to the United Nations, we are the first generation ever that can end all poverty in the world—and the last one that can stop climate change. Eva Jarlsdotter shares how we all, with small sustainable steps, can become that generation that stops the climate change. She and her family have dramatically reduced their environmental footprint. In less than a year they cut the expenses in half—without losing quality of life (to the contrary: gaining life quality). Today, this has inspired thousands of homes around the globe to untangle their home and everyday life, follow the thread, and stop being a threat to the planet.
The program will conclude with time to meet other leaders, professionals, researchers, and students interested in these topics.
