Swedish Oikos Society

The Swedish Oikos Society (Svenska föreningen Oikos) is one of five national societies comprising the Nordic Society Oikos (NSO). It is a society for ecologists with a professional interest in ecological research, particularly those who are based in Sweden. The society’s main activities are the biennial Swedish Oikos meetings (alternating with the NSO biennial conference) and the Oikos list - an electronic mailing list. 

The society is one of the member organizations of European Ecological Federation (EEF). We can also provide financial support to workshops and courses organized by members of the society.

To join the Swedish Oikos Society and NSO go here. You can also follow us on Twitter and join our Facebook group.

The word ecology stems from the ancient Greek work 'oikos', which means house, home. Ecology is the science of how organisms (animals, plants, and microbes) interact with each other and with the environment.

NSO and the national societies have launched a new, unified member platform that helps members manage their memberships, attend events, and keep up on everything going on in our societies. Here’s how to make the most of it.

Our Society
