Athens City Branding
Transcript of Athens City Branding
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Smart cities are innovative systems that combine modernist clusters, involved in research and technology, and pioneering digital repositories, which facilitate basic innovation processes such as strategic information on the collection, analysis and dissemination of information about urban mobility and transport, consumption and services.
A sustainable city is a city which has been designed with environmental concerns in mind. Sustainable cities aim to change the way they operate for the benefit of future generations, ensuring that they do not put a strain on resources which will cause such resources to vanish before future generations have an opportunity to benefit from them

Sustainable Athens 2/4
Redevelopment project «Re-launching Athens» by Giorgos Kaminis.
Aiming for total transformation of the capital by 2020
This program is based on seven pillars:
1) Double Regeneration
3) Plato's Academy
4) «Rethink Athens»
5) Cycling Networks
6) Reconstruction of dilapidated buildings
7) Regeneration of the square Varvakeion Market and Athenas Street
The authors of this project point out that, it is realistic despite the economical crisis, as it's not based on money from the Greek government, but in European funds.
The first stations of the project to be completed are: the pedestrianization of Panepistimiou street in 2014 and the regeneration of Kerameikos in 2015. Furthermore, in the forthcoming months, the implementation of the shopping center at the Academy of Plato is expected to be promoted.
Sustainable Athens 3/4
This project began as a pilot program in 2004 by Athens' Municipality and is now finally going to be implemented formally.
The first bin was installed in January in Agios Thomas Square in Goudi, in order to discharge the area from the great amounts of rubbish
In the immediate future there will be new bins in: Pagrati, Mesogion and Vasilissis Sofias, Koumoundourou Square, Kolonaki e.t.c.
Each bin has a system that compresses the rubbish and thereby can replace 45 conventional bins (and some even 70)
The garbage disposal of the new bins will be scheduled for every second day
Great success in many European cities
Financed under NSRF (National Strategic Reference Framework)
Sustainable Athens 4/4
Sustainability is one of the SNFCC’s fundamental values. The creation of an environmentally friendly and sustainable infrastructure for the buildings and the Park is an important goal in the design and construction of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.
A beacon of sustainability is borne out in every aspects of the design
Stavros Niarchos Park: covers 85% of the SNFCC site -> one of the largest green spaces in Athens
Greek National Opera -> green roof -> reduces air conditioning requirements
Aims to earn at least a Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, the first such designation in Greece

Athens moves creatively in different directions one of which is "social start-ups". They are called this way because they have the characteristics of entrepreneurship start-ups, such as innovation and entrepreneurship, but they mainly act in the realm of social sector.
They may come from either private or public initiatives, but from wherever they are routed, they decisively contribute to the composition of the image of Athens.
