Our philosophy is simple, yet creative.  We are unique in that we are a community-led educational venture with the ambition to cultivate multicultural, global citizens for the needs of the 21st century. Our core values? Curiosity, compassion, and creativity. 


By first going into schools and offering workshops on multilingualism, we then branched out into testing our workshops with adult learners in London and Paris. After finding that one game in particular generated a lot of laughs, conversations about languages, and a thirst for more, we decided to bring this to life through a standalone card game. 

We still run workshops (Olea Createathons™) for corporates, universities and schools, however we will be concentrating on crowdfunding for Private Joke between May 22nd and June 22nd. If you are interested in a workshop for your institution, please reach out to us! 

What’s more, our team of graduates and advisors from the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge, are exceptionally well-positioned to ensure Olea’s educational content is at the forefront of education pedagogies. We aim to facilitate the UN’s SDG Goal 4.7 (see below).

United Nations
SDG 4.7 

Target 4.7 | By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.

European union multilingualism

The EU is characterised by its cultural and linguistic diversity, and the languages spoken in EU countries are an essential part of its cultural heritage. This is why the EU supports multilingualism in its programmes ... One of the EU’s founding principles is multilingualism. This policy aims to help: a) communicate with its citizens in their own languages b) protecting Europe’s rich linguistic diversity​ c) promoting language learning in Europe.
