students for sustainable economics and management
Borderstep supports summer schools and events in the context of oikos International—students for sustainable economics and management.
oikos is an international student organization (non-governmental organization) which seeks to strengthen awareness of sustainable development among future decision-makers by attempting to sensitize students for long-term, judicious thinking.
In practical terms, the work of oikos international includes organizing lectures, conferences, field trips, panel discussions, simulation games, and workshops.
oikos was founded in 1987 as a local students’ initiative at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. In 1997, oikos began to organize international activities. In the process, oikos broadened its focus to include social topics in the business world.
