Welcome to the Annual Conference in Flehingen, Germany

Annual Conference 2017

„The Digital Revolution and its Children“

The Annual Conference of Oikosnet Europe is scheduled to take place upon invitation of the Evangelical Academy of Baden in Flehingen/Germany (near Karlsruhe) from 6 to 10 September 2017. For registrations and further details, please, consult the Oikosnet Europe website: www.oikosnet.eu.

“I am looking forward to an exciting Annual Conference,” Executive Secretary Rüdiger Noll said. “After so many years of internal reflection, we are now ready again to reach out to the environment around us. So many long-standing members and new partners have become active again in the framework of Oikosnet Europe and use it as a platform for mutual learning, sharing and common initiatives.”

“The Digital revolution and its Children” is the theme of the Study Day at this year´s Annual Conference – an issue about which many Oikosnet members are concerned throughout the continent. The Evangelical Academy of Baden is one of the members, which has a long-standing reputation in addressing issues of digitalization from an ethical as well as from a very practical perspective. The programme will include, inter alia, an excursion to the Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe (www.zkm.de) as well as a practical workshop on internet security.

Main items on the business agenda of the Annual Conference are the election of a new Board (including a new President and Vice-President) as well as the dissolution of Oikosnet Europe according to German law. The programme will give ample time for discussing the activities of Oikosnet in the past and in the future and for developing common activities among members.

Deadline for registration is the first of  August.

In order to stimulate discussion within and among Oikosnet members, the Annual Report of the Board, the President´s Report and the more detailed agenda are issued already now to registered participants and to Oikosnet members.
