Youth For Public Transport (Y4PT)
Y4PT (Youth For Public Transport, www.y4pt.org) is a Belgium-based international youth-led non-governmental organization (NGO) that advocates sustainable mobility through public transport promotion in order to seek a greater welfare and a better quality of life of all (young) people around the world. One of Y4PT's main goals is to ensure that youth has legitimate rights to deliberate and vote on mobility and related issues at all levels and in all scenarios since they (young people) are currently a major category of public transport users and they are inheritors of all outcomes derived from all decisions taken today by adults. Y4PT was conceived and is supported by the UITP (International Association of Public Transport, www.uitp.org), and sponsored by Daimler (www.daimler.com) and INIT (www.initag.de).
Y4PT was created to bring together young people interested in urban issues to share information, lobby practices and act collectively for getting our urban world a better one, educating and promoting consciousness towards sustainability, respecting and protecting our planet, natural and urban environment, protecting young human beings through better education and healthful living conditions.
The mission and philosophy of Y4PT is to educate, spread and improve the standards of living of human beings through the promotion of Public Transport and related issues, in developed countries, developing countries and least developed through intelligent charitable education, social projects, events and actions. Y4PT’s projects seeing the light in different countries, are focused on activities and events to raise media and decision-makers attention to help youth development and improve social conditions.
Regardless of race, color, creed, ideology, religion, social status, sex or political beliefs, Y4PT is open to charitable projects and charitable contributions.
