Y4PT aims to promote the participation of young people on transport and mobility issues through advocacy, education and employment. While Y4PT started in Germany, they are now a multi-stakeholder organization with a worldwide reach. By stimulating the active participation of young people in transport planning, Y4PT hopes to create strategic solutions for Sustainable Transport.
Y4PT runs both public awareness events like their Breathable City Campaign, as well as educational forums for young people to get informed and educated about the challenges facing sustainable transport. One of their biggest event concepts have been their Transport Hackathon Series.
The idea of these events is to combine human creativity with current information and communication technology to help advance the transport sector. The first Hackathon was held in Montreal and since then the event has been replicated all over the world and most recently in Chile.
