Oikos Copenhagen

Who We Are

Oikos is an international student-driven organisation for sustainability in economics and management. Founded in 1987 in Switzerland, we today empower leaders to drive change towards sustainability worldwide.

The heart of our organisation are our student members who turn ideas into action, currently in 49 oikos chapters around the world. They are supported by a global community of oikos alumni, advisors, faculty, and partners,

Oikos Copenhagen is one of the largest local chapter in the oikos community. We provide a platform including 6 annual projects and several activities where students, academia, businesses, government and NGOs collaborate towards a sustainable future. 

We are based at Copenhagen Business School (CBS), but we involve students from every university in Copenhagen and organize different sustainability-related projects during the year. 

Oikos has sustainability at the core of its culture. We provide a large local & global network and offer access to events in Copenhagen and abroad,  giving to our members the possibility to develop skills in project & organizational management.

What We Do

We bridge the gap between sustainability and business and provide a platform for students to think holistically and become responsible leaders. By joining oikos Copenhagen as a project member you will be part of two teams. Within your function team (Project Management, Communication, Finance, Relations, Engagement, Family) you will contribute to the development of the organization, by managing tasks related to the function you are part of. In your Project team you will contribute to the execution of one our annual projects (Green Week, Social Pioneers, Impact, Integrated Project, Effect). Each of our projects takes a different perspective about the promotion of sustainability in business, economics and management education. During the year, you will have the chance to develop your personal and professional profile, by joining a group of people driven by the ambition to having an impact and participating in both internal personal development activities and open events. You can also join oikos as a Family member, contributing to oikos events and activities, without committing for one whole year.
