Berlin Entrepreneurship Summit 2023

We presented "How to make Berlin Climate Neutral by 2030" at the Berlin Entrepreneurship Summit 2023. We worked on it for 4 months with a team of 4 oikees, creating 5 posters each highlighting the key areas for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle categorized by the UNEP (aka food, housing, mobility, leisure, consumer goods). For each poster, we categorized our findings on actions to acheive climate neutrality under 3 levels, namely the individual level, the company level and the city level. The final deliverable was a booth at the 'dialogue forum' where we showcased the posters and interacted with the visitors, as well as a panel on how to achieve the (im)possible transition.

Framework for Climate Neutral Events

This framework seeks to help all event managers, especially the ones from student associations at the University of St. Gallen, to organise and host climate neutral events. Therefore, it suggests a three-step guide to follow, including an extensive list of CO2 reduction measures & practical examples of how to compensate for the unavoidable emissions to eventually make events climate neutral.

The general goal was to collaborate with external stakeholders from other student initiatives around berlin to create a comprehensive view of how to achieve climate neutrality for Berlin by 2030. With this iniative, we wanted to learn to work in new ways, on the basis of collaboration and for a long period of time (4 months), breaking down a complex topic and a wicked problem. It contributes to Oikos’ mission to create changemakers agents: the students partaking in this iniative got to experience new ways of leading a project. Furthermore, the 5 posters were so appreciated by some of the visitors who happened to be lecturers that they are currently looking into integrating our work inot their syllabus. in doing, so, this initiative contributes to oikos’ purpose of further integration of sustainability in education.

Main Audience:
The key stakeholders were the following.

For the research on climate neutrality and the poster creation:

  • a team of 5 oikees (students)
  • a professor and member of a charity (Generationitrust) who offered oikos Berlin a spot at the Summit and acted as a mentor throughout the jounrey
  • 2 mentors

For the panel, the panelists and organisations represented were the following:

  • 4FutureLab (moderator)
  • oikos berlin
  • Employees for future
  • SolarCamps
  • Agroforst/Cool City

Qualitative description

  • our output (the posters) was so appreciated that it was will made a part of a class’ syllabus . the dialogue forum sparked countless interesting and insightful conversations with the visitors as to what can be done acheive climate neutrality
  • tangible outcomes: 5 posters summarizing the work (see first question of the questionnaire) + a panel discussion

Quantitative description:

  • more than 15 people from various iniative participated, including 5 oikees of oikos berlin
  • 5 nationalities represented
  • equal gender balance

Stories & Highlights
In the dialogue forum, I managed to convince on the participants to get involved into activism: he was on the fence but throughout our conversation how came to realize how he could become a changemaker agent in his own way. the conversation lasted over an hour and was truly insightful.

This framework aims to inspire and encourage student associations to organise events that have a neutral (or even positive) impact on the climate (see climate neutrality below). The document not only contributes to the sustainable development of student associations but also, more generally, to raise awareness for climate neutrality among students and empower students, as changemakers, to embed sustainability in their university activities and their personal life.

It contributes to oikos mission to raise awareness about sustainability habits but also enhance the purpose of oikos to educate change makers, here, by helping them to not only organise climate neutral events but to also discuss them ! (C.f. climate neutrality definition and offsetting disclaimer)

Main audience:
This framework is primarily addressed to all student associations at the University of St. Gallen. However, it is made freely available to all other interested parties that might use it to achieve climate neutrality in their organisation of events or on a personal basis. The document can be used for all purposes except for commercial ones, i.e., to get revenues from the file itself.


  • Launched a 60 pages framework full of content in how to organise climate neutral events
  • Integrated the framework in the official communication of the student union to clubs
  • Triggered the University Events Office to develop their own guidelines based on the framework
  • Published on Financial Times as a highly commended projects.
  • Published by oikos St. Gallen, oikos international, and the University of St. Gallen (ECOnnect)
  • Framework used internally at oikos St. Gallen
  • Framework used for the Start Hack 2022 and made the events climate neutral

Besides, the following events were organised (in a climate neutral manner):

List of all events organised to promote the framework

  • FS22: First official presentation – ECOnnect Get Together 01.03.2022 (100 people)
  • First event that applied the framework (its working version) – START Hack 23.03-25.03.2022 (300 people)
  • Pre-launch – Impact Collab Workshop 26.04.2022 (20 people)
  • Mini-presentation of student activities at HSG, including framework – E-land presentation 16.05.2022
  • HS22 (50 people)
  • Launch – PH / oikos members workshop 04.10.2022 (15 people)
  • Open workshop at oikos conference with GDS 23.11.2022 (20 people)
  • Workshop for HSG student clubs with Student Impact 28.11.2022 (40 people)

Gender balance was quite balanced for all events, slightly more female participants

Stories & Highlights:
The idea of the framework emerged through the collaboration of two different student clubs at the university: START Global and oikos St. Gallen. As START and oikos represent two of the largest student associations at the University of St. Gallen, their collaboration is likely to foster the acceptance of the framework by other student clubs. Joining forces will enable a wider reach and a considerable influential power to motivate other student organisations to follow the set example in climate neutrality. Moreover, the partnership allowed to effectively combine distinctive skill sets and use diversity as a strength. The interdisciplinary approach between START and oikos represents an inspiring first step to tackle the challenges related to climate change and in particular, more sustainability on campus.

“I hope that many underestimated small actions suggested in the framework will be implemented by student associations and might together make a big difference.”- Valentin Dal Zotto, Master of Business Innovation (MBI) “As positive as the impact of the numerous HSG association events can be, the environmental effect is strongly negative. That’s why, with this framework, we aim to break down the barriers to organise climate neutral events and build an environment of collaboration and support structures to work together, to reduce, and at best, to neutralise, our negative impact. I am convinced that many will be surprised how much can be achieved – even with small measures.”- Cirinne Rechsteiner, Bachelor of Economics (BEcon) “Becoming climate neutral might still seem like an overwhelming task to many people. I hope that with this framework we can offer some guidance and make it feasible for everyone.”- Rebecca Kessler, Bachelor of International Affairs (BIA) “The bare fact of finally starting the discussion about climate neutrality in events and confronting university with this topic is a great success in my eyes!”- Emilie Claussen, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) “I hope with this framework we can contribute to making climate neutral events the new common standard for events in the future.”- Isabelle Villiger, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) “Hesitation towards becoming climate neutral often comes from a lack of guidance and knowledge, not motivation. I am happy that we are helping to overcome this barrier with our framework.”- Elena Fecher, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) “May this framework be an inspiration to prioritise climate neutrality at your next event. It does not need to be perfect right away. Implement a few aspects of the framework and it will already make a difference.”- Lorena Kummer, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)

CBS Green Week

Green Week is an annual sustainability forum (duration 3-5 days) that provides a platform for individuals to come together and discuss sustainability trends and developments. The event is a collection of activities, including conferences, panel discussions, workshops, movie screenings, community and networking events, among others. Green Week was one of the largest student-led events in Copenhagen and attracted students, young professionals, and sustainability enthusiasts for more than 10 years.

Basic Learning Program

BLP is classroom coaching program that we provide to the underprivileged students in and around Jamshedpur. We get them to our XLRI Jamshedpur campus and student volunteers teach them various subjects.

We seek to inspire and encourage individuals to shape a sustainable society through their actions and leadership. Therefore, Green Week is a forum for stakeholders across all of society to meet, discuss, and exchange about trends and developments within sustainability, enhance personal transformative capabilities, as well as providing networking and career exploration opportunities. The event contributes to oikos mission to raise awareness for sustainability opportunities and challenges. Green Week happened every year from 2012 to 2023.
(Next year, Green Week will not take place in its original format anymore as Copenhagen Business School (CBS) has now initiated their own big sustainability forum named Green Business Forum, that can reach an even bigger scale and where we actively contribute as oikos CPH.)

Main audience: 
The main audience of Green Week are students from the Greater Copenhagen Area. We are bringing together students from different programs and universities. Furthermore, NGOs, professionals and professors join Green Week every year as speakers and participants. Green Week is open to everyone interested and we promote the forum on various platforms in order to reach as many people as possible and encourage exchange between stakeholders from different backgrounds.

Green Week is organized by a dedicated team from oikos Copenhagen and financed by Copenhagen Business School. Every year we had different stakeholders partnering up to create a unique program. We cooporate with NGOs (e.g. Grønt Market) and oikos alumni. Companies with a strong sustainability agenda and professors from CBS and other universities joined to provide high quality content. Furthermore, we worked together with other student organizations within the Green Student Network at CBS. We consistently sought to explore diverse event formats within the Green Week program, aiming to create engaging and inspiring experiences.

Qualitative description of perceived impact:

This initiative resulted in a yearly forum of 3-5 days giving room to participants to learn, exchange and discuss about sustainability. By educating about sustainability, bringing together students and sustainable companies/ NGOs and by providing (regenerative) leadership workshops we have impacted and inspired sustainable careers of indiviudal students and our members over the years. Overall, we believe we have amplified the voice of sustainability on campus.

Quantitative description of perceived impact

Example of CBS Green Week 2023:
5 days, 9 events, 14 speakers, 250 participants
International organization team: 11 people from 8 different nationalities (German, Swiss, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Norwegian, Polish and Italian), equal gender balance (5 male & 6 female)

Note: Unfortunately, we don’t have a total impact overview of Green Week since its creation in 2012 that we could share.

Stories & Highlights:
After-Movie Green Week 2023

The initiative is to give personal attention and coaching to the kids. Although they are taught in a class together, Sigma members take up 4-5 kids each and mentor them one-on-one, clear their doubts, ask them about any problems they have and inspire them in general by highlighting the importance of a good education. It falls in line with the “Learning” vertical of Oikos.

Main audience: 
Children in the age group of 9 years to 14 years are the target audience. We partner with an NGO which helps the students to get to the XLRI campus by providing bus transport. They also help us identify and connect with those in need.

We have been able to reach around 30 students per session by this initiative who come to the campus to learn three basic subjects: English, Mathematics and Computer Science. We had 3-4 sessions each for BCLP, BELP and BMLP programs with a total turnout of 300+ children. The gender ratio remains to be 60-40 in favour of boys. This initiative even helps the kids look forward to what education in a premier institute looks like and motivates them to be interested in studies. We also provide them with snacks and breaks in between to keep them engaged and interested in the whole process.

Social Entrepreneurship Conclave

Social Entrepreneurship conclave, SEC, is a panel discussion around up-and-coming fields and pressing issues around environment, entrepreneurship, social concerns, etc.

Gift of Time

Student volunteers along with Sigma members along with student volunteers and the college singing group, visited an old age home in Jamshedpur to interact with and play for the senior citizens there.

The general goal is twofold: to create a space where important topics can be discussed openly with peers and, to get domain experts to have an informative interaction with facts and trends. It contributes to the “Learning” impact as it creates spaces, and necessitates the discussions around what current b-school students should be aware of.

Main audience: 
Various speakers from different industries are invited depending upon the topic and the sub-topics chosen in the given year which is related to some SDG Goals. The audience generally consists of graduate and postgraduate students. We also invite school and college students from the nearby community to spread awareness.

SEC brings together Social Entrepreneurs from across the country and gives them a platform to discuss their work and learn from others’ experiences. Last year we had 2 panels with 3-4 speakers in each panel along with a Keynote speaker on the topic of “Entrepreneurship in Waste Management”. Apart from the obvious gains, students get to network with people in the domain they are interested in. They find contacts in the relevant field which they want to pursue further.

No fancy or expensive gifts but what these senior citizens need and deserve is our time. The objective of this initiative was to provide emotional support and companionship to the elderly residents who live there. The event aimed to create a positive impact on the mental health and well-being of elderly people by offering them a break from their routine challenges and a new perspective on life. It addresses the “living” aspect of community building.

Main audience: 
We interacted with senior citizens, listened to their stories and struggles and entertained them with dance and music performances in collaboration with two local NGOs- “Nirmal Hridya” and “Aashirwad Old Age Home”.

In terms of the impact, we could see the bright, beaming faces of the residents there. We interacted with 100+ senior citizens and even presented them with gifts and necessary items. It was a wholesome experience.


Talk with discussion - How can Lecturers and Students work together to integrate Sustainability into all fields of Education?

We all know that immediate action is necessary to tackle climate change. In this talk, we want to discuss the role higher education plays in driving the transformation towards a sustainable future, and how we as students, lecturers, and researchers can implement changes at our university to amplify our impact. Together, we want to explore how we can incorporate learning about sustainability into all fields of education. No matter whether we talk about physics, linguistics or law: We need everyone to achieve a change! The panel discussion was held in a fishbowl format, meaning the experts did not sit on a stage. Instead, a circle of chairs was set up with several rows, with the experts and the moderator sitting in the middle. One or two empty chairs in the middle allowed the audience to sit down and participate in the discussion if there were open questions.

Lectures for Future (L4F) - The impact of digitalization on climate change and possible measures in everyday life

On Mai 22, 2023, we held a guest lecture on "The impact of digitalization on climate change and possible measures in everyday life" in German again as part of the Lectures for Future: Climate Crisis and Sustainability series at the Vienna University of Economics and Business in the summer term 2022. Lectures for Future (L4F) is an interdisciplinary lecture series offered at various Austrian universities since the winter semester 2019. In the L4F, researchers provide insights into their current scientific and artistic work on climate crisis and sustainable development.

We wanted to use this amazing opportunity to unite experts, activists, students, and the public and provide a space where we all can imagine our future university landscape and show how students, teachers, and university staff can collaborate to incorporate learning about sustainability into all fields of education. No matter whether we talk about physics, linguistics, or law: Sustainability is relevant for all disciplines. In addition to finding ways for teachers, students and university staff to work together to achieve more sustainability in all fields of study, we also wanted to show why this collaboration is so important and necessary. What is more, the talk was a great opportunity to share good practice examples and ideas. This event was a starting point for us! Even now, it continues to have a strong positive impact: We will also share all ideas and learnings collected in the discussion with the sustainability department of the University of Graz to support the university on its path to becoming a climate-neutral university by 2040 and hope also to share the insights with other interested universities.

Main audience: 
Our main audience was students, lecturers, and university staff from universities in Austria.
We partnered with three professors from the University of Graz (Department of Environmental Systems Sciences, Institute of Translation Studies, and Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change) and one activist from Erde Brennt.


What gives us a reason to celebrate? 

We celebrated our good work and successfully organized a talk with discussion. We also encountered some problems during the talk that we turned into learnings, and we had a lot of fun. Many people were interested in the fishbowl format we used, which is different to the traditional panel discussion. We spoke to participants who showed great interest and who want to join other events or even work with us. We celebrated our work at the beginning of the Higher Education Summit 2023 together with other projects from other chapters, organized by the COPERNICUS Alliance and oikos International, and shared some of our insights and learnings. We also connected with many organizations, Austrian-wide universities and student representatives, as well as companies that showed interest and would be happy to share and promote our next events! What is more, the Sustainability Department of the University of Graz also asked about our outputs.

What was the impact of this initiative? 

32 participants joined our event and engaged in the discussion. Even now, the event continues to have a strong positive impact: We will also share the ideas and learnings of the discussion with the sustainability department of the University of Graz to support the university on its path to becoming a climate-neutral university by 2040.

What influence did it have?  

We will share all ideas and learnings collected in the discussion with the sustainability department of the University of Graz to support the university on its path to becoming a climate-neutral university by 2040. We also hope to share the learnings with other interested universities.

What are the milestones you have reached during this project, tangible outputs/outcomes?

In the event, we collected and discussed numerous ideas on how to create a change within higher education, and we will continue to work with this input.

Some of the main points in the discussion are the following:

  • Sustainability is a transdisciplinary subject, and there are only a few fields of study where integrating sustainability into the curriculum might be difficult. Global warming and other environmental issues are some of the biggest challenges we face, and to tackle them, we need to address them from various perspectives.
  • There was a common consensus that if we want to achieve change, we must educate future entrepreneurs and everybody carrying responsibility. The discussion participants had many different ideas and opinions on achieving this. 
  • Some argued that the urgency of the climate crisis, the biodiversity crisis and many other environmental issues require strong measures, and, consequently, sustainability needs to be a mandatory subject for everyone in higher education. While the university of Graz already offers some opportunities to learn about sustainability (e.g. Master’s Plus, electives…), it is not a mandatory part of some degrees such as economics.
  • A best practice-example was shared: University of Salzburg has integrated the topic into their framework curriculum. As a result, from now on, all updated curricula need to include 6 ECTS credits from classes related to sustainability. Students can choose from a pool of different classes. 
  • Other speakers disagreed and emphasized that forcing students to learn something never brings the desired results. Instead, they proposed focusing on creating new narratives, telling stories, and making learning playful and interesting.
  • Other suggestions shared included integrating volunteer work into the curricula, creating more incentives for students to choose sustainability-related courses, and taking direct action to enable greener living on campus, for example, by switching to a plant-based food system.
  • We also took part in the discussion and shared good practice examples of how students, professors, and university staff can work together to integrate Sustainability into Education, like the “University-wide basic module: Sustainable development,” which we developed in cooperation with the RCE Graz-Styria – Center for Sustainable Social Transformation.
  • Furthermore we mentioned the survey we conducted on Transforming Education towards Sustainability in cooperation with Martina Tschuchnik 
  • (Sustainability Team, University of Graz) and Mario Diethart (RCE Graz-Styria – Center for Sustainable Social Transformation).

Quantitative description of perceived impact (2-3 lines)

eg. How many people participated?

– 25 participants in person and 7 online 

– Organizing Team 3 Persons

Total: 35

How many nationalities were involved? 

At least eight different nationalities.

What’s the gender balance?

The gender of participants and speakers as a whole was balanced.

Stories & Highlights: 
One key takeaway is that we, as a team, are great at solving problems together!

Organizing and hosting this event brought a lot of unexpected challenges. For instance, we had booked a beautiful room in one of our University buildings. However, we were unaware that this particular building is secured with additional safety measures because of chemicals stored in the laboratories. From 6 p.m. onwards, the doors can only be opened from inside the building, not outside. As the event took place at 7 p.m., we struggled to ensure all participants could enter the building. However, all oikees who were present, as well as some of our friends, worked together to solve the problem and open the doors for everybody.

This event was only successful thanks to the dedication and support of everyone involved – a perfect example of the saying, “Teamwork makes the dream work!”

A short reflection on purpose: what’s the general goal?

We need sustainable action to address major global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity and resource losses, conflict, and poverty. That implies a re-orientation towards development at all levels. Sustainable development is most described as a development that satisfies current needs without risking future generations being unable to meet their needs (Brundtland, 1987). Taking sustainable action means making our professional and private everyday lives environmentally and socially compatible and initiating changes in our own environment. An important approach to achieve that is education.

One of the main goals of oikos is to transform education and integrate sustainability into all studies.

Transforming Education aims to improve the education system and strengthen local students’ awareness and knowledge about sustainability.

We also wanted students and the public to know about our oikos Graz initiative and what we want to achieve with our Transforming Education project.

What do/did you want to achieve with this initiative?

This initiative aims to create and raise awareness of the importance of sustainability issues. The submitted guest lecture’s main aim was to share one current challenge for sustainability, which is the effects of digitalization on the environment, and what measures we can implement in our everyday lives, thus demonstrating our expertise. We want to spread sustainable topics to various Austrian universities long-term.

Learning outcomes from the Vienna University of Economics and Business guest lecture will address current challenges for sustainability from different perspectives and show possible solutions for the transformation to a sustainable economy and society. In this way, we promote the participants’ independent opinion formation and critical reflection on the key challenges of the change to a sustainable economy and society.

Since education is at the heart of our efforts, sharing our knowledge with our fellow students and the interested public is an excellent opportunity to achieve these goals. We are also grateful that our efforts are recognized by leading professors at different universities in Austria, and we are regularly invited to give guest lectures.

How does it contribute to mission/vision/purpose of oikos?

One of oikos’ main goals is integrating sustainability into universities’ curricula. A handful of disciplines cannot solve the complexity of our economy and the world’s current challenges. What we need is collaboration, interdisciplinary approaches, and responsible leadership! With Transforming Education, we set the focus where future leaders, managers, etc., are created – at universities – and address one of the main contributors to positive change – education.

Main audience: 

Mainly students. We partnered with the organizers of the Lectures for Future from the Vienna University of Economics and Business and the University of Klagenfurt. Furthermore, with the organizers, Scientists for Future. Many of the L4F events are open to the interested public. For example, our guest lecture at the University of Klagenfurt was also open to the interested public.

Qualitative description of perceived impact

What gives us a reason to celebrate?

We aroused the interest of many participants in relation to the topic that was presented. Afterwards, they gave very positive feedback and asked about the slides. Many were not aware of the effect it can have on our environment.

We were contacted by the Vienna University of Economics and Business lecture at the end of September 2023 that our lecture was very popular, often chosen, and reflected in the student’s work! That’s why they would like to add the lecture recording to the lecture pool for their students in future semesters!

Another reason to celebrate is that students and the public know more about our organization and what we want to achieve through our projects, especially Transforming Education.

What was the impact of this initiative?

Our lecture was very popular, often chosen, and reflected in the students’ work! Our guest lecture of more than ten lectures accounted for 20% of the voluntary reflection work. That’s why they would like to add the lecture recording to the lecture pool for their students in future semesters.

What influence did it have? 

We aroused the interest of many participants about the topic that was presented. Afterward, they gave very positive feedback and asked about the slides used. Many were not aware of the effect it can have on our environment. We achieved our aim to create and raise awareness of the importance of this sustainability issue!

What milestones have you reached during this project, tangible outputs/outcomes?

An essential part of the project was the opportunity to give a guest lecture at two different universities. In addition, we aroused the interest of many participants in the topic we presented. A key milestone for us was that many students showed great interest in our guest lecture at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. The lecturers who organize the Lectures for Future at the Vienna University of Economics and Business contacted us to ask whether our recording of the guest lecture would be in the pool and could be integrated for their students in future semesters.
