Ms. Iris Fagniez

Iris Fagniez is an 18-years old IB high school student in Bali, Indonesia. She has a strong passion for the environment, and a true desire to help the world. While Iris is originally from France, she has spent most of her life in Singapore and moved to Indonesia in 2018. After being actively involved with several local initiatives, in she decided to address the issue of poor food waste management through the nexus approach to benefit the local community, environment and economy. “BakeryCycling” started out as a small pilot project however quickly grew into a social enterprise that upcycled leftover bread from neighborhood bakeries into granola. The granola is then bartered for local organic red/brown rice from a family farm in Ubud to promote organic agriculture. The rice is later distributed to local orphanages accompanied with interactive workshops on healthy eating. After a few months of hard work, I have managed to make this concept self-sustainable and easily replicable worldwide. Thus, BakeryCycling’s new vision it to create a movement on responsible production and consumption through 100 youth led initiatives! Through social media and various events, I hope to continue meeting and collaborating with motivated youth on pressing issues such as food waste, inequalities, health and wellbeing and the lack of education/access to healthy foods in low income communities.
