ADB has launched a youth video competition on sustainable transport!
“Are We There Yet? Our Journey to a Sustainable Transport Future” is a video competition for the youth. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) will be hosting the 5th ADB Transport Forum in September. The premier gathering on sustainable transport in Asia and the Pacific, the event regularly draws international development and transport experts, government leaders and heads of private sector to discuss the latest policies, issues and best practices affecting transport and development in the region.
This kicks off our outreach for the upcoming ADB Transport Forum. Building on the theme Sustainable Transport for All, we are seeking views, solutions, observations from young people aged 18-25 years old on how we can make transport better, safer, faster and greener. All they need to do is present this in video format shot on mobile phones or any camera. The details are in the pdf below.
