Organizing transportation in a more sustainable way without building new roads
Blog 2 | Student team TU/ecomotive
The vision we have as TU/ecomotive is: "To create a future where climate-positive mobility is accessible to all." To achieve this, "inspire" is one of our main pillars. And that is therefore directly one of the main goals of the tour: to inspire people. And by people we mean everyone, not just car companies and technicians, but also tourists walking past our 'stand' and children who think the car looks cool. That's also why we started the tour at Nemo, the science museum in Amsterdam. We wanted to show young and old alike what we have achieved and what our vision and mission are. We started the day at the entrance to Nemo and later in the day were allowed to start the chain reaction, which is typical of Nemo. In the afternoon, we managed to reach the general public by talking to the press and conducting interviews
We have been on tour for over a week now. We started with some great expectations. As already mentioned in our goal, we mainly expect to inspire many people with Eterna. Among other things, we hope to do this with the sustainable concept of the car. We have calculated that if Eterna's concept is applied on a European scale, we could save about a third of emissions. That's significant. We also want to inspire with Eterna's striking, sporty appearance. The design is inspired by nature and thus fits well with the ambition for sustainable mobility. We expect to make a real impact with Eterna next month, even if it is only our modest contribution to the bigger picture of a sustainable world.
