Oikodrom Scientific Concept/Approach:
Oikodrom follows the definition of strong sustainability as an ideal concept for actual change towards sustainable societal and material processes.
Human Settlements: The interdisciplinary research process focuses on given societal and environmental local systems, from small neighbourhoods and villages to big towns and cities.
Theory and Practice: When starting the local sustainability processes, the team generates theses and theories for the emerging research field of sustainability. Thereby we discuss the role of the scientists, and work on future scenarios and a common vocabulary - the thesaurus of sustainability.
Interdisciplinary Research: The interdisciplinary cooperation is a basic precondition for sustainability research. The complexity of societal, economical and material processes demands for scientific knowledge of several disciplines for present and future sustainability oriented changes.
Transdisciplinary Research: Sustainability research has its local expressions, and participation of dwellers is indispensable. The combination of local and scientific expert knowledge assures sustainability oriented solutions.
Multicultural Research: The multicultural research network around Oikodrom strengthens the global approach to the complex issue of sustainability.
