About the oikos FutureLab:
The oikos FutureLab is our annual flagship event to gather the global oikos family of student members, alumni, advisors, faculty and partners. It is not only a meeting to share perspectives on the future, but also a “laboratory” to design initiatives and engage the oikos community in pursuing them.
