Limits to growth - growing beyond limits?
18./19. October 2007
The oikos Conference 2007 focused on growth and sustainability.
20 years after the Brundtland report “Our common future” and its impact on the sustainability debate, growth is still the dominating principle in today’s global economy. Why, where, what and how do we want to grow?
The conference design empowered students to set up own projects and to contribute to the knowledge base of the oikos network.
We will monitor the outcome and report on the number and contents of projects.
--- Get a glimpse of what the oikos Conference was like and have a look at some video impressions! ---
"The oikos Conference is a great opportunity to provide new ideas and bring them into the mainstream! I think the world needs such new ideas badly with the kind of challenges that we face and I am gratefull that oikos provides that."
Prof. Dr. Bernard A. Lietaer, Naropa University Boulder (CO), USA, oikos Conference speaker 2006
"I congratulate the students to this oikos Conference. They are real catalysts for sustainable economics and help promote business models by integrating economic and ecological aspects."
Dr. Walo Bauer-Hug, Group Raiffeisen Switzerland, oikos Conference speaker 2006
