Cobi-Jane Akinrele


Cobi-Jane is an Associate at Ten Years’ Time who supports the team’s work  with understanding the issues that underpin social inequalities in the world today. Cobi-Jane believes that more than ever before, social justice is a factor all organisations must contend with. Outside her work at Ten Years Time, she leads a farming collective in North-East Nigeria.

In her spare time, Cobi-Jane volunteers with the Open Food Network, supporting small, and at times side-lined, farmers to connect with consumers in the UK. She is also an active board member of Sustain: the Alliance for Better Food and Farming, an advocacy charity committed to promoting British food and farming policies that improve the welfare of people and the planet.
