Welcome to Annual Conference of Oikosnet Europe

Prague 7th - 11th of September 2016

Dear Friends of Oikosnet Europe!

On behalf of the Board of Oikosnet Europe and on behalf of the Ecumenical Academy in Prague, it is our pleasure to invite you to the next Annual Conference of Oikosnet Europe. The Annual Conference is scheduled to take place upon invitation of our member, the Ecumenical Academy of Prague, under the main theme “Transition Accomplished or Mission Impossible – Economic Developments and Civil Society. The Example of the Czech Republic”

As usual, the Conference will begin with an opening worship September 7th at 17h00. It will end with breakfast on September 11 th.

Many of you have already registered to the conference, but since we still have som members missing we have decided to keep the registration open until the 26 th of August. 

Costs registration and financial support

The conference fee remains at the level of previous years: 350€ for the Annual. Conference (Board, Lodging, Conference Fee, Excursion) and 130€ for the Pre-Conference of the Gender and Justice Network. However, according to our agreed policy and given the difficult financial situation of some of our members, we want to state that the lack of resources should not be an obstacle for members to attend the Annual Conference. There is a limited budget for supporting members in need of financial support to attend the Annual Conference, which will be distributed, in principle, on a “first come –first served” basis. If you are in need of support, contact our Treasurer Ms Nicola Murray at  

Please note that you should not register on-line if you want to apply for financial support by Oikosnet Europe. When/if support is granted, the Oikosnet Europe Office will register you as a participant, and you will receive a confirmation about this via e-mail.With our very best wishes and hopes to see you all in Prague

Jaap van der Sar, President Oikosnet Europe
