oikos Spring Meeting 2017

Mar

23 - 26

Hamburg, Germany

We drink, we eat, we drive; we consume ‘stuff’ the entire day. But mostly not in a sustainable way! That’s why consumption is a critical issue towards sustainable development and, therefore, better citizenship. The United Nations even included this aspect in their Sustainable Development Goals. We bring the oikos network together to share and facilitate knowledge across different local chapters in order to promote, inspire and enable future solutions for action on sustainable consumption.

In the next year (23.03.-26.03.2017) oikos Hamburg is hosting the oikos “Spring Meeting 2017”. Up to 140 international students will deal with the topic of sustainable consumption under the title:
USE YOUR POWER – Empowering Young Leaders for Sustainable Decisions

The Meeting contains of speeches, discussions and workshops. Additionally, we involve local firms and projects, which share their concepts of sustainable consumption. The aim of the conference is to increase the knowledge in the different areas of sustainable consumption as well as enhancing critical thinking and foster project experiences. Through this meeting, the participants will be more aware of their responsibility as informed consumers, sustainability conscious employees and future leaders. Thus, they will be empowered to make more sustainable decision in their private and work life.

+++ The 1. registration deadline is the 10. December 2016 +++
