Since its inception, the Buskers Verein strives to plan and design the festival in a resource-conserving and environmentally friendly way. The festival uses urban open spaces, and artistic performances expand Vienna’s cultural programme. The event is gaining popularity from year to year, with the number of visitors increasing continuously, including the ecological and social responsibility. Expediency, technical feasibility and cost-benefit factors are taken into account in the planning and implementation of environmental measures. Eco-friendliness is not seen as a problem, but as an opportunity to make the festival ecologically and socially sustainable and efficient. Sustainability, environmental awareness and resource conservation are long-standing, dynamic strategies. The environmental measures put in place are re-evaluated and expanded every year.
