Do you remember the feeling of setting up your tent on a campsite? Asking your neighbours for the utensils you forgot back home & learning about new ones as you get wrapped into a conversation? There are few things that fuel us more than a night around the bonfire, exchanging old stories with strangers that turn into friends, & writing new memories to the sound of a guitar in the backdrop. At oikos, we believe that those are the spaces we need to live more sustainably and leverage the impact of our work.
Join us around the co-creative bonfire of oikos CAMP with your team!
How does a more sustainable world look & feel?
What can we learn in the process of creating it?
Moving into a third edition with creativity & a diversity of projects
CAMP 2023 will be hosted at the Catalan ecovillage Vidàlia (close to Barcelona) from 30.07 – 06.08.23.
We invite 35-50 participants from across the globe with 6-10 diverse projects. This year, we strive to draw further synergies between oikos initiatives & external partners. The event will be organized & facilitated by oikos’ Transforming Education team.
Our aim is to make CAMP as sustainable & inclusive as we can.
This year’s edition of CAMP will be marked by the proactive involvement of academia & business partners. We envision opening CAMP to both collaborative projects between students & partners & will save some spots for partner initiatives as well. We are very grateful for any contribution beyond active participation.

THE ROLE OF PARTNERSHIPS
Moving forward together, beyond sustainability
HISTORY OF CAMP
Stories of collective change & community
The oikos CAMP was a vision that first rendered reality in 2021. After a great first edition in Italy, we further developed the concept & hosted the second season in Spain. Both change labs have been attended by students & partners from across the world & across disciplines, a tradition we would like to strengthen. Read more about Camp ‘21 & ‘22 in our recaps.
The story of the sustainable finance toolkit
The power of CAMP is helping teams advance their projects with increased impact & through mutual support. Here is one example:
At CAMP’21, the Sustainable Finance Squad, a group of students from 6 different countries, created a toolkit with resources & training. During ’22 the project spread further & included interviews with Sus. Fin. practitioners & academics.
What started as a small group of students wanting to help others learn, is now a network of practitioners, professors, & student-leaders gathering around the topic. oikos CAMP enabled this project to spread further in our community and beyond while receiving critical feedforward and developing connections.
