oikos International Chapter Conference Graz 2022

April 22 - April 24

The International Chapter Conference (ICC) is the annual Spring Meeting of oikos. Every year oikos chapters across the globe meet up for this event. There are two main purposes: The ICC is a way to reconnect with our international network. A strong network is what makes oikos so successful. We are proud that people outside oikos, scientists, researchers, company owners and activists show interest in our association and are happy to either support us with their input or join as guests. The other main purpose of the ICC is to further engage in sustainability related topics.

This year’s ICC takes place in the beautiful city of Graz. Our conference program is balanced around creating awareness for climate action and supporting our network. As activists and change agents, we are exposed to the harsh reality of the status quo and the lack of action in so many areas. This can be frustrating, and for many, overwhelming. Under the title “Small people – Big Systems: How can you be the change?”, we have committed to a special program that gives credit to the significant work each and everyone of the participants has done so far. Apart from that, we will further create awareness through engaging activities, workshops, and input sessions. Our program includes workshops about climate anxiety and how to deal with it. We will empower activists of all ages in their endeavors by providing them with tools that will facilitate their work. Hands-on activities will show how powerful teamwork can be in pushing for change. Furthermore, we will provide the frame for reflection, exchange and dialogue between experienced change agents and our participants.

Since this year is the 20th Anniversary since the founding of oikos Graz, this ICC brings another specialty – it is the homecoming of our alumni. 20 years of oikos Graz has seen many engaged individuals fighting for the same cause. A lot of experience has been accumulated over these years. Therefore, we dedicate a special day for the homecoming of our alumni. This day will also provide the opportunity to connect with the international sustainability community, inside and outside oikos. Graz is known for its great local sustainability community and is therefore the perfect spot for a networking event of that kind.
