We can help you go green at your festival! When you plan to travel to ECoC events, you can make a difference by making choices that help reduce your environmental impact!
Sustainability is one of the core values of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture programme, so our events must be environmentally sustainable. As the return journey is usually one of the most polluting activities for events, it is important for us to encourage people to choose less polluting modes of transport.
