Klimawandel, gesellschaftliche Krisen, Umweltverschmutzung, Menschenrechtsverletzungen โ€“ all das kann รผberwรคltigend wirken. In diesem Workshop geben wir dir Mut und zeigen, wie wichtig jeder Einzelne ist und wie du tรคglich zur โ€šZukunft fรผr Alleโ€˜ beitragen kannst. ๐Ÿ’ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒ

Wir betonen die Kraft des Individuums, stoรŸen positive Verรคnderungen an und adressieren globale Probleme.

Dabei setzen wir uns mit dem Framework der Inner Development Goals auseinander. Letztes Jahr veranstalteten wir erfolgreich einen Workshop dazu im Rahmen der EU Green Week. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒ

What happened so far...

Uniting for a Greener Future: The Impactful Alliance of oikos Graz and the EU for the EU Green Week 2023 - Empowering the Movement for a Sustainable Future

In line with the Year of Competences, the partner events focused this year on the theme of competencies for sustainable, resilient, and socially fair communities. 

Throughout Europe, partner events were organized by schools, universities, NGOs, government agencies, etc. These events are designed to raise awareness of the importance of environmental protection and the promotion of sustainable lifestyles and to educate people. 

We held two workshops and a talk/discussion on three separate days during EU Green Week.

Digitization and sustainability are considered to be the greatest challenges in the 21st century, but the connection between the two topics has so far received little attention. At our workshop "Aus- und Einwirkungen der Digitalisierung auf Umwelt und Gesellschaft" which we held in German, the influences of digitization on society and the environment were addressed and discussed in depth in an interactive part. 

Climate change is not gender-neutral. It has a disproportionate impact on women and girls worldwide due to existing gender inequalities and power structures. The talk / discussion "Women & Climate Change" not only critically discussed the gender-specific risks of the climate crisis for women and girls, but also how gender equality can be one of the solutions. 

In order to advance global challenges, we need certain skills and qualities to meet them. The Inner Development Goals fill exactly this gap! 

In the workshop "Navigating Complexity through the Inner Development Goals" our goal was to give an overview of the IDGs, why we need to develop these inner dimensions and dive deeper into IDG Thinking.      

We reflected on our thinking skills and how they apply them to our own situations, as well as the opportunities they can offer us to gain these skills and how we can use IDG Thinking to drive change in our daily lives (personal and professional).    

In addition to theoretical input, participants will have the opportunity to deepen these skills in interactive activities.

Cooperation with the first Geco-festival!

We are very grateful to the Geco-Festival Team for the opportunity to participate in the first Grazer Eco Festival (Geco)-Festival 2023 celebrated in June at the Sustainable Shopping Market and to offer the Workshop "Becoming a Sinnflunencer:in"! 

Recently the date for the next Geco-Festival was published and will take place again next year from June 14th - 16th, 2023 at the main square in Graz (Hauptplatz). We are very excited to participate in next year's Geco-Festival! We have this weekend already well noted on our calendar! 

The last Geco-Festival was a great experience to be able to network with people, inform them about what we do at oikos, and a valuable opportunity to get inputs through a list we made to improve projects or collect new project ideas through the general public. We will make sure that all project ideas and improvements will be implemented in the coming winter semester.
