Our story.

meet our community.

At oikos, we have been coming together as a global community of student change agents for over 30 years. In over 20 countries and 50 cities worldwide, we organize on campus to raise awareness for sustainability and transform our own education.

As we work towards the change we want to see in the world in our particular contexts, we explore and practice the leadership our world needs in the 21st century.

what we do.

our initiatives.

Our international initiatives aim to support the change we want to see in the world by empowering and encouraging student change agents and actively creating shifts in the way curricula are structured and developed.

Our focus is on economics and management education, including multiple transdisciplinary perspectives and learning approaches. This links back to our central question on how we want to learn, lead and live together.

For over 30 years we have been continuously innovating with formats that provide platforms for learning, creating and sharing solutions: social labs, conferences, webinars, workshops, simulation games, learning journeys are just some examples.

The oikos Leadership Program - LEAP inspires young people to become more responsible and susatinable in their decision making and equips them with insights, knowledge and tools to do so.


Curriculum Change Initiative

Very few educational institutions are currently up to the task of truly preparing students for a world that will be overwhelmingly shaped by issues of sustainability.
Our mission is to shape education with this in mind.


oikos FutureLab

At the FutureLab, the whole community meets to build partnerships among oikos members, alumni, faculty, partners and strengthen our actions for integrating sustainability in economics and management curricula.
