University of St. Gallen,
Dufourstrasse 50, 9000 St. Gallen, Switzerland
Can you make it?

Join us in St. Gallen...!

After more than 30 years of oikos, it is high time to have an event for alumni!

Please join us at the first ever St. Gallen Unconference! We will gather a crowd of oikos alumni, active oikees and friends who share our vision of a sustainable future.

Our goal is to help you find as many links in the network as possible. We are sure you will meet people who want to drive things, who want to build new businesses or new organizations to foster sustainable business, politics and economics.


We hope this will also be a fun opportunity to meet old friends, make new acquaintances, create new connections and make existing connections blossom. This will be facilitated by extended networking slots (aka coffee or lunch “breaks”)…

We are looking forward to seeing you in St. Gallen! Please sign up today for our first unconference, and start thinking about how you can contribute. As places are limited, please make sure to register now.

How it works

Unlike in a conference, the agenda in an unconference is shaped by the participants, fostering co-creation, collaboration and spontaneous exchange.

  • Catch up with other Alumni

  • Participate in a range of networking possibilities with like-minded people from diverse backgrounds in sustainability

  • Leverage the participants’ knowledge and skills to benefit from each other’s know-how

  • Focus on sustainability topics and discussions that emerge as relevant to the attendees instead of having a fixed agenda

  • Discuss/work in small groups instead of listening to a lecture in a huge crowd
