The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) is pleased to offer Generation Green on Board: Youth Summit to Advance Public Transportation as a virtual experience!
The "virtual" summit was an excellent opportunity for high school students to engage with current professionals who are addressing transportation issues such as preserving the environment, advocating for a higher quality of life, and innovating solutions with the use of technology. Students from previous summits teleconferencded with APTA members.
Groups from the class of 2011 will delivered a short presentation on the projects they created during the 2011 Youth Summit in Washington, D.C.
The goals of the virtual conference were:
- to expose high school students and “Youth Summit” alumni to APTA members;
- to experience the professional communication in today’s global world;
- to practice public speaking skills while learning from peers;
- as well as to help students plan the necessary steps for a successful future career.
The free online webinar was held on Wednesday, May 23, 2 - 3:30 p.m. ET
