After the discussion, there will be an opportunity to ask the speakers a few questions

Footnote on OIKOS Lugano
Founded in March of 2021, oikos Lugano is an up and coming chapter in Switzerland’s Italian speaking region of Ticino. They began as a student club at Franklin University Switzerland, but hope to engage more with the other universities here in the Lugano area.
They are currently a small and ambitious team collaborating with Sustainability Week Lugano and are developing annual events to ensure they are collaborative and impactful in the Lugano region.
The chapter is located at Franklin University Switzerland, but our activities are not limited to FUS students and are open to any other students at higher education institutions, such as Scuola universitaria professionale della Svizzera italiana (SUPSI) and Università della Svizzera italiana (USI).
