Our international initiatives aim to support the change we want to see in the world by empowering and encouraging student change agents and supporting them in actively creating shifts in the way curricula are structured and developed. Our focus is on economics and management education, including multiple transdisciplinary perspectives and learning approaches. With our work, we provide fertile ground for the leaders of tomorrow to grow and learn: Our philosophy is that to support individuals in becoming sustainability leaders, education has to focus on fostering students to have "...an enhanced understanding of themselves, their abilities and desires, as well as a more profound understanding of their fellow humans and the world they inhabit. For over 30 years we have been continuously innovating with formats that provide platforms for learning, creating and sharing solutions: social labs, conferences, webinars, workshops, simulation games, learning journeys are just some examples. At oikos, we have been coming together as a global community of student change agents for over 30 years. Spread in over 20 countries and 50 cities worldwide, we organize on campus to raise awareness for sustainability and transform our own education.
Reducing extreme poverty through efficient microfinancing and enterpreneurship
Mission statement\n\nTHE SAINT NORBERT CHARITY FOUNDATION, \n(Established by the Norbertine Sisters of Hungary in 1992)\n\nBACKGROUND: The centre of our work of rehabilitation and reconstruction is in Zsámbék, the largest of six villages comprising three Parishes in an area 3O kilometres from Budapest. As a direct result of 45 years of Communist rule our people suffered physical, mental and spiritual deprivation. When we began our work here, after the change of Government in 199O, we found a situation of almost total impoverishment and apathy. There was no employment, few skilled workers, family life had collapsed, the young had no role models or work ethic, and the self-image across the age groups was negative and hopeless.\n\nFAMILIES AND CHILDREN: Step by step we have developed facilities. We began with practical help and counselling for families, and started a Day Care Centre for children from 5 to 15 years, providing meals, clothing, one-to-one care, and introducing values that were previously unknown to them. This year 75 children are in attendance at the Centre.\n\nYOUTH: Because no further education facilities were available within a 3O km radius, we opened in 1996 a Trade and Vocational Training School for young people from 15 upwards. They receive work-skill training to whatever level each can sustain, and there is a High School course, culminating in the National Matura Award, for the more able students. Trade courses include Catering, Handicrafts, Needlecraft and Tapestry, Tailoring, and tutored workshops in Carpentry, Metalwork, Locksmithing, and Building and Allied skills. This year we have 25O students from 15 to 2O. We have an eventual upper limit of 3OO students, in order to preserve the sense of community that we believe to be essential. It is a vital corrective to the influence of a failed ideology which, nevertheless, provided a type of security on which, sadly, previous generations became dependent. Our emphasis throughout is on personal development, an awareness of values, and responsibility for community, in Christ.\n\nADDITIONAL PROJECTS: Out of these main elements have grown other projects. A) the provision of adult literacy classes for parents and older mermbers of the community. B) job training for the unemployed and unskilled. C) workshops for physically and light mentally handicapped people – the last two run in partnership with Government.\n\nOVER-RIDING CONCERN: Traditionally, Hungary is a Catholic country, but we found in 1993 that more people were atheist or agnostic than were Catholic. In all our Projects we work to foster a Christian outlook and, by the grace of God and thanks to our programme of evangelisation, Baptism, Mass and the Sacraments are now central in the lives of increasing numbers of our people.
The centre is a new attraction in the life of the region; it offers exciting adventures and lifelong experience to all age-groups. Play and entertainment are combined with learning in Agora; children and adults may get acquainted with special instruments, scientific curiosities and may be part of unique and spectacular experiments. In the laboratories of the three-storey modern building the visitors can gain insight to the miracles of physics, chemistry, biomedics, hydrobiology, botany and robotics, but also can examine the phenomena of the sky in the observatory.\n\nAgora is a constantly renewing interactive, cultural and scientific centre where we not only aim to popularize natural and engineering sciences but also to establish a creative scientific community, as well as to give chance for innovative national and international companies to present their developments and results.

The Real Pearl Foundation is a non-governmental organization with the mission to develop and support the communities in one of the most underprivileged and poverty-stricken regions of Hungary, near Berettyóújfalu. We have been working to tackle the challenges of integration and development since 1999. Our programs include arts education, talent development, family care and community support, and vocational training courses. Our aim is to show that talent is present everywhere, and great treasures are lost if children's potentials are not fulfilled due to their circumstances. Art is just one of many examples of this potential. We hope the public will realize that instead of the stereotypes prevalent against the poor and the Roma community, these children need to be known and heard, and instead of rejection they need to be supported, so that they can find their own place in society when they grow up. We are working on a of complex strategy (starting with education) that embraces all the elements of the problem-matrix. Our pilot program has shown measurable results for seven years in the change of situation of people living in extreme poverty for generations. Our model, which is unique to our Foundation, works to combat the generational poverty that was once believed to be inherent to these communities. We are working on making our model to adoptable for other organizations and NGOs that seek to address this widespread issue.
