Practice@Business, Oikos

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

The Portuguese NGO Oikos – Cooperação e Desenvolvimento (Cooperation and Development) aims at eradicating poverty and redu-cing economic asymmetries and the inequality of knowledge. Oikos belie-ves that the individual and collective effort to achieve a social order which contributes to the elimination of poverty, exclusion and social ine-quality should focus on the sphere of active citizenship. The project ‘Practice@Business’ aims at transferring, applying and disseminating in Portugal a capacity building methodology that has been proven success-ful in several parts of the world — the business simulation is an innovative approach to work with the youth. Youth employability and socio-professional integration are core issues on which Oikos has been focusing its interventions over the past years in Portugal, in particular in the north of the country.
