SDG of the Year 23/24
Every year we choose a theme that we focus on to raise awareness and money for a related NGO.
This year’s theme is Sustainable Cities and Communities.
SDG 11 underscores the urgent need for urban areas to be environmentally friendly, socially inclusive, and economically prosperous. Shockingly, more than half of the world’s population currently lives in urban areas, and by 2050, this number is projected to reach 68%. As cities continue to grow, the pressure on resources, infrastructure, and quality of life intensifies. SDG 11 reminds us that the path to a sustainable future begins with reimagining and transforming our cities into eco-conscious hubs where all residents can thrive.
On the 16th of September, in collaboration with AISEC Spain, oikos Barcelona coordinated a Beach Clean-Up on the Barceloneta.

In 2021/22 academic year oikos decided to collaborate with Forest Nation by funding our own forest in Tanzania. The aim of Forest Nation is to plant trees in an area hit hard by deforestation and industrial agriculture with every item purchased. Through their program, they focus on generating sustainable livelihoods in developing countries by employing youth and women in local communities. By doing this, they link economics to sustainability.
