The future is always interpreted by the past. Since we can’t predict what may come, we must prepare for anything that comes our way. Sustainable Development is to progressively develop economically, socially and politically without compromising or jeopardizing the future. oikos-Vellore is the first Asian oikos Chapter to have been established in an Engineering University. We believe in the Pyramid of Sustainability where Ecology, Economics, Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Societal impact form the five vertices. Through our events, projects and campaigns we strive to empower our fellow students and to alleviate the issues affecting the people around us.
oikos International is an international students organization consisting of 40 official chapters all around the world. The organization was established in 1987 in Switzerland thanks to students of the University of St. Gallen. The aim of founders was to promote socially sustainable, cost-effective but also environment-friendly resources management.
oikos promotes sustainable development which means such natural resources, human capital and economic activities management which guarantees more stability but also more diversity of our natural and economic environment. The main purpose of oikos International is to popularize the knowledge about sustainable development among academics of leading business schools and universities. For more information, click here.
Since oikos Vellore is based at a Technologically inclined institute, we go to the ground level to understand problems with sustainability and come up with feasible solutions for the same. For more information on our projects and initiatives, click here.
