Sebastián PERNET

Co-Founder and Treasurer of Y4PT-UITP Foundation

Brussels, Belgium, Europe


"Transport is a mean for achieving an end: This is how I also describe myself. Serving as a long-standing collaborator at Y4PT has been a unique and worthy experience for bridging opportunities for today's young people and future generations from all over the world by advocating and envisioning all together not only an environmental-friendly mobility, but also one that treats all human beings in a horizontal way, wide-ranging and accessible to everyone."


Sebastián PERNET is Co-Founder and Treasurer of Youth For Public Transport (Y4PT) Foundation, a Brussels-based non-profit organization established in 2005 by the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), which is nowadays the world's leading global youth network on sustainable mobility. At Y4PT he is in charge of transport-related core technical issues such as knowledge, learning, research, development, operations management, among others. Under his tenure one of the Y4PT’s flagship projects, the Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon series, was acknowledged by the European Mobility Week Secretariat (European Commission) as one of the best practices of 2017.

He also works as an international freelance professional, specifically a management consultant, by providing advice to different major stakeholders in a wide range of both passenger and freight transport-related issues.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics and took courses in transport engineering at master's degree level.
