oikos International


mapYou found the website of the oikos Winter School 2017. It is an established conference of oikos International, a worldwide student initative that supports and promotes sustainability in the curriculum of universities. It was founded in 1987 in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Since then oikos International gradually increased in size and number of members. Currently it consists of more than 40 chapters around the globe.
In times of global imbalances and an economic system that privileges the rich, changing the understanding of economics and management is the key towards a future of greater sustainability.
The chapter of Witten/Herdecke organizes every year a conference that wants to be a part in that changing and constructive-minded process.
