As the oldest and one of the largest oikos initiatives the oikos Conference takes place each autumn at the campus of the University of St. Gallen since 1989. A mix of keynote speeches, workshops and panel discussions offers a platform for students to initiate a dialogue with representatives from academia and economy regarding sustainable ideas and trends in the global and regional economy. The goal of the conference is to raise awareness for the need and potential of sustainable business in the present and future economic environment.
Our 3 objectives structure the entire conference as:
Informative: Selected company presentations (speeches).
Interactive: Real-life practical case studies (workshops).
Fostering debate: Active discussion with different practice partners (panel discussion).
The oikos Conference 2019 took place on November 26 and 27. The topic was “Finance in Motion”, where over two days, professionals from various fields challenge today's financial sector.
