Welcome to the homepage of ViA: Forum for Sustainable Visions in Action!
ViA is an incubator for new and existing visions for the future and a global platform for sustainable approaches to lifestyle, the economy and work.
Through interactive work with youth and young adults, ViA aims to shed light on the global challenges of our time (economic crisis, biodiversity loss, environmental degradation, climate change, etc.), as well as promote a constructive and proactive approach to overcoming these challenges.
Together with the Leihladen Vienna, SOL and ERDpapiere we played the “Hectar Game” and experimented on the topic of “resource use and resource distribution”. With this event we were happy to contribute to the European Sustainability Week as well as the Austrian Aktionstage Nachhaltigkeit.

As part of the interactive environmental documentary “Our Beloved Treasures” broadcast by the Franco-German channel ARTE, we interviewed Valentina’s Italian uncle – who was a fisherman for decades in southern Italy – and sent it to ARTE. You can see the interview in ARTE’s film. Unfortunately, the video is no longer available on ARTE’s website.
Check out this short video of Irene, a ViA Ambassador, as she starts her flight-free journey from Vienna, Austria to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! Irene adopted a class at the Rosasgasse High School in Vienna and focused on the link between human rights and sustainability throughout her journey.
The Choose Your Own Sustainability Adventure project is being evaluated! Via the GO Eco-Social Master’s Theses Portal (in German) of the Eco-Social Student Forum (ÖSSFO) Miriam Bahn, a master’s student of social ecology at the Vienna branch of the University of Klagenfurt (Austria) found a topic for her master’s thesis which will have a direct impact on how we carry out our project in the future. Over the coming months Miriam will be conducting her research and interviewing stakeholders regarding the project and how it promotes and achieves the objectives of the UN Decade on Education for Sustainable Development. We look forward to working with her and reading the results of her research!
