OIKODROM, the Vienna institute of Urban Sustainability, is an interdisciplinary institute with experts in the fields of social sciences (sociology, linguistics, participation) and sustainability (agriculture, economy).
Oikodrom is a private research institute founded in 1994 by Heidi Dumreicher. It generates future images and strategies for human settlements in countries all over the world – from Europe to China and to the Mediterranean Islamic countries – under a concept of strong sustainability.
The Oikodrom-team of the Vienna institute of Urban Sustainability creates mental and physical spaces where change can come about. The emerging future scenarios contribute to the creation of systemic knowledge as well as to the participatory implementation of sustainability processes in human settlements.
Oikodrom follows the definition of strong sustainability as an ideal concept for actual change towards sustainable societal and material processes.See more
