The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center participates for the 3rd consecutive year in the European Mobility Week taking place from 16th to 22nd of September, and aiming to develop a more active and sustainable way of living.
In 2018, within the framework of rewarding initiatives of sustainable mobility, the SNFCC was awarded the first prize by the Ministry of Environment & Energy in the category “Mobility Actions”. The SNFCC, from the first year of its operation, promotes sustainable mobility, by encouraging the cycling culture and the use of bike as a mean of transport, exercise and recreation.
European Mobility Week is an institution established in 2002 by the European Commission, aiming at promoting sustainable urban transport. It is realized every year from 16th to 22nd of September, intending to encourage city residents to choose sustainable modes of transport, such as walking or cycling.
As part of the European Mobility Week, the event “Open Discussion - Micromobility and cargo bikes in the European Cities” takes place at the NLG Book Castle, at the SNFCC:
We invite you all to an open discussion around micromobility (light transport vehicles) and cargo bikes (bicycles for product transportation), with guest speakers from Greece and abroad.
The use of light transport vehicles, such as electric roller skates and bikes, contributes to the improvement of air quality. During the discussion, country representatives from USA, Holland, Austria and Denmark, will present good and useful practices regarding micromobility.
