To sustain a diverse group of young professionals to consider some of the challenges and opportunities posed by ongoing changes in the transportation industry and outline how these changes are pertinent to the future careers of young transport professionals. 


The outline objectives to achieve this vision are:

  1. Ensure that the FTVG represents the interests of a diverse range of young professionals
  2. To demonstrate a clear evolution from the original Transport Visions Network
