Our Vision

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.

oikos Kick-Off 2018

"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.”
