WTF can I do? -
Developing your agency facing the ecological crisis

From 27 to 31 March 2023 we will welcome you to our Winter School here in Witten!

the 17th Oikos Winter school

The Winter School this year focuses on the journey of individuals to a sustainable society. With the aim of finding out what a single person can do to address climate change and how we as individuals find our place in society. We will explore different questions, discuss together and develop tools to create more sustainability together. Join us this time to tell your story, build networks and create a sustainable society with allies.


How we design our program, which speakers we invite and what added value the Winter School will bring you in the end depends very much on our values. We want to create a unique experience for you, where you not only learn a lot, but also gain hope and look strengthened into the future. This is the only way we can transform society in a sustainable way.

More than just Input!

In addition to first-class keynotes and workshops, we also want to devote ourselves to the personal level – because a social transformation presupposes an individual one. You will soon find out what exactly you can look forward to and which speakers we are inviting. Stay tuned!
