In 2009, Ivo established the Good Gym; a social enterprise that tackles isolation and loneliness amongst older people.
The project, which won first prize at Social Innovation Camp in 2009, has been cited by leading think tanks as an example of innovation in the social sector and has recently been funded by the NHS.
Prior to this, Ivo was Creative Director of ‘thinkpublic’, a social design agency based in London where his work has focused on public participation in the social sector.
In 2008, Ivo directed the documentary film Us Now, an exploration of participatory culture. The film has been broadcast around the world, translated into 24 languages and watched by millions online.
