Today's students are the next generation of mobility professionals who, with their fresh ideas and sometimes radical perspectives, will shape the future of urban mobility. The Mobility Powered by the Youth (MPY) Conference is a youth-centric conference and that focuses on the role of young people as changemakers in the sustainable urban mobility arena.
The conference aims to connect young mobility professionals from an early stage of their careers with an opportunity to acquire on-the-job experience by presenting and moderating to a large audience. An already selected group of young professionals will have the opportunity to present their sustainable urban mobility research, as a part of an internship, graduation assignment, hackathon or university course. Through these presentations, the Conference aims to initiate an exchange of views and knowledge among speakers and attendees.
Attendees of the MPY conference can expect to discover the current and up-and-coming topics in the mobility field from their the research of their peers, as well as have the chance to build connections for future collaboration.
The 2021 edition of the conference was hosted alongside the CIVITAS Forum 2021 from 20-21 October, 2021 in Aachen, Germany. This year, the conference followed a hybrid format, allowing youth to participate from across Europe.
