International Chat - Discord

Our new community exchange for all members and friends.

Discord is a community chatroom with text and video communication that works very similarly to messengers like Slack or WhatsApp. It is structured into servers and channels that are fostering different topics and spaces. A server is a collection of chat rooms (eg. text or voice/video, and resources).

In our oikos Community Discord server, we are hoping to…
  • Introduce you to the rest of the international community

  • Keep you up to date on events and programs by oikos International and its chapters

  • Give you the space to exchange ideas with other chapters

  • Host your own chapter space, if you wish

  • Give you the chance to participate in our “oiCoffee” initiative

We are looking forward to having you and growing this room for you and your fellow members together. In this guide, we will guide you through joining the platform, your first steps, and the possibilities it offers.

Can I use Discord for my own chapter or group?

Yes! We have a useful template that you can use for your chapter.

It comes with all channels you need for your chapter to get started and is all yours to play around with! There won’t be any interference from oikos International if you choose to follow this template and leverage it for your local oikos chapter.

How can I get help in case anything goes wrong?

If you have any questions, or trouble regarding the new platform we prepared below a short help center to support your effort on this journey and you are always welcome to contact us.
