Our diverse community of student changemakers is always thriving with action and innovative ideas towards sustainability. The work of our chapters, may it be recurring events or new initiatives, deserves the spotlight and to be showcased & celebrated.
We are launching the second edition of the oikos Community Impact Contest as a participatory, fun and engaging way to invite our chapters to showcase and celebrate their accomplishments and share it with the rest of the oikos community.
We wish to celebrate the incredible effort and the impact our chapters are creating at their local campus and beyond through this unique opportunity to present their work to a wider audience. Our students deserve the spotlight, because their projects are just one sign for the unstoppable drive for change within our community.
In order to do so, oikos International has developed the oikos Impact Matrix. It is a tool to track & trace the impact of our whole community, with a focus on real-time accountability and the stories behind our work. Next to oikos International initiatives, chapter projects play a special role in this showcase.
The oikos Community Impact Contest is a fun, participatory and engaging way to invite our chapters into co-creating the matrix as it gives them an opportunity to share their most important projects. While celebrating each other’s work, this will provide a platform to learn, exchange and get inspired within & beyond the oikos community.
To host a truly meaningful contest, we call you – all oikos Chapters – to participate boldly!
- Participate: Hand in all projects that you would like to share with our global oikos community, by filling this form (10-15 mins). This way, you will get a chance to share the work of your chapter with the world. Tell us your story behind the project and inspire some hearts from the community. You can be as creative as you wish 🙂
- Vote: The community will get to vote during the International Chapter Conference (ICC) (20.4 – 23.4) where each and every oikee will be able to vote online on their preferred projects and initiatives. The voting will be held online and available for everyone, regardless if they’re attending the conference or not.
- Celebration & Publication: The initiatives with the most votes from four categories (learning, leading, living & organizing) will be announced during the Legislative Meeting on the ICC (22.4.2022) and will be presented on the oikos International website. There will be a special price for all listed initiatives 😉 Only thing left : CELEBRATION!
Let the games begin, enjoy the contest!
