oikos Graz is a subchapter of oikos International, a global student organization. Since 1987 oikos International has been engaged in projects for a sustainable economy across the world. Today, it includes 50 active student-led groups in countries all over Europe, the Americas, and Asia.


What we do

We draw attention to ecological questions and conflicts. Our projects and events create awareness and inform about sustainable alternatives to contemporary issues. Education is at the center of our work. Therefore we set impulses there, where the managers and leaders of tomorrow are made – at universities and schools. Through our events and projects such as talks, workshops, webinars, movie nights, Design Thinking Challenges and many more we shape an early understanding for the complex ecological, social, and economic challenges of the 21st century. To achieve this, we are in close contact with the University of Graz and other schools and local organizations.
