oikos international is a student-driven organization for sustainability in economics and management. Founded in 1987 in Switzerland, the oikos network today empowers leaders to drive change towards sustainability worldwide.
The oikos international programs embeds environmental and social perspectives in universities for economics and management around the world. It comprises conferences, seminars, speeches and other initiatives to transform teaching and research.
The Leadership Program (LEAP) and the FutureLab, which both take place in Switzerland each year, are oikos international's biggest events. They are open to any oikos member and aim to foster the international network by bringing chapter members together.
Currently there are 49 oikos chapters registered. oikos international is supported by a global community of alumni, advisors, faculty, and partners, as well as a professional team based in St. Gallen, Switzerland. However, the heart of the international organization are its student members who turn ideas into action.
