Last 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.
On the 21st of February and the 17th of April, in collaboration with CIEE and Human Resources Association, oikos Barcelona coordinated a Beach Clean-Up on the Barceloneta.
In total, there were around 40 participants in each edition. Overall, the Beach Cleanup was an empowering experience in which we brought together an amazing group of enthusiastic students with the common goal of taking care of the planet!
SDG of the Year
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 Nutrition.
We have a food problem. Huge numbers of people go hungry; large nutritional imbalances persist between high- and low-income nations and regions; and the food system is both failing society and damaging the planet.
Linked to this activity we have developed several initiatives.
In November we hosted the first edition of THE COOKING WORKSHOP organised by oikos in collaboration with Esade Gourmet Club.
