Traveling to the PUR in a sustainable manner is not only desired but also rewarded. There will be a competition: the journey with the lowest CO2 emission compared to the standard journey will be rewarded with a cash prize (approximately as much as three participants’ fees). This means, those who make a special effort to travel environmentally friendly and emission-free will reduce their own participation costs.
There are three different categories for groups from Salzburg, groups from Austria, and groups from abroad. A comparison between the standard travel specified by PUR and the actual travel of the group is rated. The goal is, for example, to improve the already sustainable train journey by walking a part of the distance or even coming by bike. We are currently working on a calculation tool for this.
sustainability challenge at the pur
All participants can earn sustainability points during PUR, for example by choosing vegetarian meals instead of meat, running electrical devices on solar power, sharing a cooking station with a partner group to save resources, and much more. There are no limits to your creativity! From a certain number of points, you will receive the Sustainable PUR badge. Participants with the most points will receive special (non-cash) prizes.
