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 5 h 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 year, we want the youth to be involved. If you are between 18 and 25 years old and a citizen of an ADB member country*, we want you to show us how you see transport in the future through a video of up to 3 minutes.
What is the contest theme about? “Are we there yet?” is a common question encountered in most journeys, and it can mean two things:
eagerness to reach a destination or impatience with a long trip. Either way, sustainable transport begs the same question :
  • Are we there yet?
  • How can we make travelling faster and better?
What’s the prize?
  • There will be two (2) winners: a Judges’ Choice Award and a People’s Choice Award.
  • The 2 winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip (transportation, accommodation and daily allowance) to Manila, Philippines to participate in the ADB Transport Forum 2016  on 13-15 September 2016.
  • The 2 winners will be introduced during the youth session of the event.
