The core of oikos are our chapters. Each of them is a member in oikos International – a Swiss association that serves as umbrella organisation. See the Constitution of oikos International.
Funding and long-term guidance are provided through the oikos Foundation.
Chapters are supported by an international management team based in St. Gallen. They also elect an executive board of oikos International which decides on the overall strategic direction of the organisation together with the trustees of the oikos Foundation.
