Oika is a science-based, cultural movement to re-establish nature and ecological intelligence into daily human experience.
The word Oika is derived from the Ancient Greek word Oikos, which is also the root of the term "eco" (as in ecology and economy).
These two concepts, ecology and economy, have become separated. Today, economic wealth is usually gained at the expense of ecological integrity. This is flawed thinking, rooted in a myth of separation, that has led us to the ongoing tragedy of discontent.
Oika aims to re-establish the concept of "eco" back to its original, integral meaning. The programs of Oika bring ecological wellbeing and economic prosperity back into balance and their original, mutually-enhancing state. We believe ecological intelligence is the only way for humanity to maintain long-term viability.
Oika approaches this lofty goal from the bottom up. We start at the level of personal thought first, with the optimistic hope that ecological intelligence will self-propagate to culture.
