"We hear a lot about MTR and probably most of us ride it every day. The Youth Forum offers a rare opportunity for us to get a first-hand look at different facets of MTR business, and bring our voices directly to one of the busiest public transport companies in Hong Kong. I am impressed with how the management really considers our opinions."
Established in 2015, the Youth Forum comprises a diverse group working youth and students aged between 18 and 30 who act as the Corporation's ¡¥youth consultants'. Forum Members exchange views with management during quarterly Forum Meetings and provide us with feedback and ideas on business initiatives. During the year, Forum members learn more about the Corporation through behind-the-scene visits to our sites and facilities. Through this experience, they gain exposure to working in a business environment and benefit from professional development opportunities that have been specially created to support their growth.
Forum Members contributed to the development of the name and logo of "Rail Gen 2.0", and their ideas have also improved how we communicate, such as using humour to promote safety in our "Ride with Manners" campaign, and rejuvenating our approach on topics like By-laws and the Fare Adjustment Mechanism.
