The oikos FutureLab is organized by international oikos members and the oikos management team. It convenes the whole oikos community and furthers the oikos mission: bringing sustainability into management and economics education. Helped by top-class speakers and member-led breakout sessions, in 2017 we will explore what we can do to make the world a better place in 2047.

oikos Alumni

Sat, October 14

For alumni, it is one of the great pleasures to indulge in conversation with old friends: There is so much to catch up on! And just like our alumni, oikos members are eager to follow up on ideas and conversations of the past two days and create action plans for cross-chapter activities. Saturday’s morning will be all about meeting old friends and making new connections that last. More info tbd.
