Alumni Debates Online

Spring Meeting 2016 Participants

Spring Meeting 2016 Participants

With the oikos history reaching back more than 25 years, there is a vast group of alumni who have shaped our organization during the last two decades. The diversity among them is significant – ranging from former oikos members who have just graduated and started their first job to alumni who have more than two decades of working experience in business, politics, NGO and academia. And yet, their common history and interest in sustainability provides a bond that lasts long beyond their university years.

Alumni Debates is a platform to bring these generations together to discuss topics that they are passionate about. If you are interested to bring this event to your city, please contact us at .

In 2016, the ambassadors for the french alumni network created a directory for the oikos Reims alumni. Two years later, the ambassadors go back to this project with a broader perspective: creating a French alumni directory (Annuaire des anciens du réseau oikos alumni France) gathering info from the alumni of the french chapters (Lille, Paris and Reims). The objective is also to update the alumni data base. When contacted, the Alumni will be able to chose which info will be available on which media (directory, data base, website…). After created, the directory will be available to all members of the French chapters to enable the connections between members and alumni and strengthen the network.

If anyone is willing to help working on this project (knowing French is better but not compulsory) or want some information,

Alumni Testimonies

Yannic Steffan, alumnus of oikos St. Gallen

“oikos never stopped impacting my path. The oikos Finance Initiative was a perfect fit and a great place to find peers. When I heard about the corresponding Learning Circle on Finance, joining it was a no-brainer. There is one on Entrepreneurship, Finance, Energy, Leadership, Management, Economics and Supply Chain (Fashion). If you are interested in any of these topics, make sure to join one as I did.”
Yannic Steffan, alumnus of oikos St. Gallen

Eike Haas, alumnus of oikos Witten/Herdecke

“I would like to encourage each and everyone of you to engage in oikos’ international bodies such as the EB and cross-chapter project teams. Apart from the impact you may yield with your engagement and the friendships you may develop with like-minded internationals as you are, via conference calls and face-à-face discussions in cross-cultural working groups you will prepare yourself for a career in an international working environment. Take these chances!”
Eike Haas, alumnus of oikos Witten/Herdecke

Xavier Martin, alumnus of oikos Paris

“After being the oikos Paris President and contributing to the redaction of the first ESSEC PRME report, My next project is a world tour concerning organic waste recycling. We are going to offer free consulting services to social entrepreneurs and NGOs that value organic waste in developing countries.”
Xavier Martin, alumnus of oikos Paris

Pranav Gajar, alumnus of oikos Ahmedabad

“We set up a Hand Papermaking Studio at the Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology, Ahmedabad, India, where I am an architecture student. The idea is to initiate disabled people into producing handmade paper on a commercial scale to make an honest living, which will create livelihood opportunities. The initiative is successful and ready to be replicated.”
Pranav Gajar, alumnus of oikos Ahmedabad
