ABOUT OIKOS COPENHAGEN
What is oikos Copenhagen doing?
oikos Copenhagen is the local Danish chapter of an international student-driven organization that promotes sustainable economics and management education. We are the largest sustainability-related organization within the Copenhagen area and also within the oikos community. We are located at CBS, but our activities are not limited to CBS students and are open to any other students at higher education institutions, such as KU and DTU, as well.
"Sustainability is not only a trend, is a fundamental pillar of the emerging socio-economic paradigm. Students are at the forefront of this revolution, but they are often not aware of how Impactful they can be. At oikos Copenhagen we know that, and we involve the leaders of tomorrow to make an impact, starting today.”
oikos Copenhagen comprises 42 members divided into the oikos Copenhagen Board, 6 projects and 6 functions.
The association is organised according to a matrix organizational structure. Therefore, each member is simultaneously part of one project and one function.
The oikos Copenhagen Board consists of six members, each of them coordinates one of the six functions, those being the following:
PM. Manage the overall organization of the project
COM. Manage the communication of the project
FIN. Manage Budget and Fundraising for the project
REL. Manage the contact database of the project
ENG. Ensure high motivation and organise internal event and leisure activities
ACC. Our new oikos Accelerator (formerly oikos Family) aims at sharing and building knowledge with other universities
Each of the 6 oikos Projects follows the same structure of the Board. Each member is responsible for specific tasks, according to the function they are part of.
