This year, oikos Reims celebrates its 10 years. In this occasion, a regional meeting was organized in Reims ( France ) in November 17th, 18th and 19th allowing to gather the various French-speaking chapters of oikos (Lille, Brussels and Lausanne ) as well as its alumni and members of oikos international (plus a special guest who wanted to learn French: Florian Repper from oikos Cologne ). During this weekend the participants discovered the theme of the Bioeconomy during conferences and workshops. We had the honor to have by our side Nicolas Béfort, engineer of Bioeconomy, Antoine Yvonnet, store manager of Symbiose in Reims, and Simon Dobosz, an entrepreneur in Eco-printing, to direct us on this concept and deepen our knowledge and reflections.
Besides, they discovered the specialities of Reims : OIKICHES, special organic meals of oikos Reims which are quiches made from organic products and Reims champagne through the visit of cellars of champagne Vranken Pommery.
It was a weekend of celebration and intercultural exchange. It was full of conversations and new encounters which allowed us to discover alumni’s best oikos memories and their careers, projects inside each current chapter, and learn from others.
Thank you for all, we were delighted to share these good moments with all of you.
All the best,
La team oikos Reims
