    Y4PT Youth Lab: Putting forward youth-driven feasible pioneering solutions for boosting transport-related mobility sector worldwide.

    To sum up, in an Y4PT Youth Lab, with the facilitation of Mrs. Alessandra GORINI (Co-Founder and Executive Director of Y4PT Foundation), participants (Y4PT Youth Delegates) are organized by same-sized multi-disciplinary working groups to brainstorm leading to highly-innovative ideas (feasible ones) which later on can be expressed as project proposals (by using a basic project management approach). Results are delivered to UITP Members in the audience of the 2nd UITP MENA Public Transport for Large Events Summit to put them into their consideration in order to be possibly implemented in their cities and urban transport systems.

    Y4PT Youth Delegates will put forward highly-innovative ideas for changing current mobility patterns and travel behaviors for more sustainable ones, by proposing education-related projects to inspire current policy makers and private sector for building more human- and environmentally-friendly cities and societies, especially in the Qatar and the MENA Region.

    All these projects coming from this Y4PT Youth Lab edition will be included in the “Y4PT Idearium” to be presented at the 5th Y4PT World Youth Meeting (Y4PT Milan 2015) in the framework of the 61th UITP World Congress and Exhibition (UITP Milan 2015) - www.uitpmilan2015.org -, in order to show to all UITP members a compendium of the wide range of innovative ideas that young people from all over the world have put forward after one decade of uninterrupted activities of Y4PT (in 2005 the UITP Youth Project was created, the forerunner of Y4PT Foundation).
