Vision & Mission

Our vision for 2050

The goals of our work are
one Austria, one Europe and one world,
in which...

...a strong civil society ensures
as a cornerstone of democracy
freedom, solidarity and sustainability
on the same level of security,

... humans respect 
the finiteness of resources,
their responsibility for the climate,
preserving the diversity of life, and
a species-appropriate animal life,

...the observance of the knowledge of many different people
leads to better decisions than
the assertiveness of a few peers, and

...the economy respects the boundaries of the planet and
serves man.

Our mission

ÖKOBÜRO fights for the rights of the environmental movement as an alliance independent of the state, parties and companies. Together we are committed to a sustainable approach to our environment, a strong civil society, and a democratic constitutional state. We unite strength and competence in the alliance of our member organizations.

ÖKOBÜRO develops legal and political solutions for conflicts between the use and protection of the environment in order to strengthen environmental protection in the balance of interests between civil society, state and economy. To this end, we prepare factual analyses, conduct political discussions and participate in strategically important environmental procedures.
