oikos International Team

The core of oikos are our chapters. Each of them is a member of oikos International – a Swiss association that serves as an umbrella organisation. See the Constitution of oikos International.

Chapters are supported by an international management team based in St. Gallen. They also elect a board for oikos International which decides on the overall strategic direction of the organization together with the Board of trustees.

  • Who are Board members?

    Talented oikos members who are passionate about sustainable economics and management. They strategise and develop the oikos community, bring fresh ideas and implement new projects.

    What do Board members do?

    The oikos International Board governs and manages the departments of oikos International and governs strategic decisions for oikos to be a sustainable organization and have a sustainable impact. As representatives of the oikos community, the VPs have the opportunity to inspire and empower the network towards oikos’ purpose, mission and vision. Contributing to the organization’s development and sustainability, VPs work in dedicated departments and roles and collaborate with the oikos management team, the working groups, the community and the strategic partners with similar objectives.

    Applications for the oikos Board 2019/2020 are now open, please for details click here.
