oikos Conference



St. Gallen, Switzerland

The oikos conference is the biggest project of oikos St.Gallen and has been a fixture in the calendar of the University of St. Gallen for more than 20 years. Every year, students, experts, and practitioners meet to discuss current and future trends in sustainable economics and management.
The conference took place for the first time in 1988 on the topic of “environment-oriented business management”. In its approach, it was the first of its kind in the german-speaking region – which made oikos a forerunner in raising public awareness for sustainability aspects at university level.

This year, the oikos Conference is part of the oikos 30-year anniversary celebrations (see the right side bar for more information). You can apply to the oikos Conference individually when registrations open through this site. Or you register to the two-and-a-half day celebration, bringing together the global oikos network from October 12-14 by visiting our oikos anniversary website.

oikos is turning 30 this year. We celebrate with three events in St. Gallen, Switzerland, bringing together the global oikos community: Our members and alumni, advisors and faculty, partners and supporters, from 30 years of impact.

The first event is the oikos FutureLab, taking place in Pfalzkeller on October 12. On October 13, oikos St. Gallen hosts the oikos Conference (for the 29th consecutive year) at the University of St. Gallen. On October 14, oikos Alumni use the opportunity to network and reconnect. Join our celebrations! You can now register for all three days. Visit the oikos 30-year anniversary page at www.oikos-international.org/30.
