Our main goal

To keep the oikos community and spirit up, we believe annual events are necessary!

Thus, we are delighted to invite you to join us at the upcoming edition of  St. Gallen Unconference! We will gather a crowd of oikos alumni, active oikees and friends of oikos who share our vision of a sustainable future.


Our main goal is to help you find as many links in the network as possible and to offer you the space to share your knowledge and experience. We are sure you will meet people who want to drive things, who want to build new businesses or new organizations to foster sustainable economics and management.


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 register today for the Unconference, and start thinking about how you can contribute. As places are limited, please make sure to register now.

You can already mark your interest on our facebook event.

Why joining?

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

Where does it take place?


It takes place in St Gallen.

Every year, we request to do it at the University of St Gallen (HSG), where oikos was founded back in 1987.


We use Zoom as platform to meet and exchange.
2020' participants were happily satisfied of the St Gallen Unconference infrastructure. 

Our unique "immersive camera" will provide you the best online experience, making you feel you are lively in the room.
