Trends in automotive technology - moving from the car with internal combustion engine to electric vehicle
Athanasios Safacas, professor emeritus, Dr.–Ing., University of Patras

The car is an important factor in economic and social development and plays an important role in human welfare. The use of hydrocarbons as a source of energy in conjunction with the invention of the internal combustion engine led the automotive technology at a high level. The discharge of pollutants and oil dependency require a shift towards electric vehicles.

The roots of the violence aimed at pedestrians
The Movement for the protection of pedestrians' rights

The problems faced by pedestrians in Athens, or generally in Greek towns and cities can be seen immediately by anyone who takes the care to look around them, and more so to those who try to walk the street: few or no obstacle - free pedestrian areas. Most pavements are ultered with rubbish, blocked by deliver vans and their goods, parked cars, tables + chairs and anything else one might decide to abandon on pavement.

After agreeing to save the country, a general agreement is required to stop the extermination of the infrastructures and to work for the return of growth through large-scale development projects. Are we ready?

The upcoming implementation of the “Double Regeneration Project”, in association with the announcements of the mobility responsible ministries concerning the construction of a cycling network leading across the City of Athens, offer a unique combination chance for the benefit of the urban environment, inhabitants, with an emphasis on students as well as visitors.

Sustainable mobility and particularly cycling encounter difficulties in the City of Athens. Although many Athenians would like to be mobile by cycling, the lack of cycling paths and safe bicycle parkings keeps the cyclist percentage in the city low. Ministries responsible for mobility have at times announced the support of the bike use, none of them has reached implementation yet. In a local level the Municipality of Athens seems this year willing to actually support cycling.
