oikos Winter School 2010: ... beyond sustainability: A Critical Dialogue Between Culture and Economics

A student conference going beyond the surface of sustainable development in economics, culture and politics.

Venue: University of Witten/Herdecke, Germany

Dates: 7-13 November 2010

What's it all about?
Between November 7th and 13th 2010 the oikos Winter School welcomes 25-30 highly engaged students and young professionals from all over the world on the beautiful campus of Witten/Herdecke University situated in the heart of Europe's capital of culture 'Ruhr 2010'.
The Winter School 2010 aims to provide a platform to enter into a critical dialogue between culture and economics allowing new perspectives on sustainability that are not merely an add-on, but a cultural process in and between different societies.
In a week full of reflection, boosting inspiration and forward-thriving action our participants will gain a deeper, more critical and sustainable perception of the world that will enable them to act as circulators and change agents for sustainable development in economics and culture.
A constituent part of the Winter School will be the conveyance of practical skills to create and implement participant's sustainable project ideas as well as a methodological approach to art as a way towards new and innovative ideas.

You can apply for the oikos Winter School 2010 until the 1st of October 2010.
