Transportation has always been with us and has moved the world. It affects each of us and is thus a social topic, which is why the Faculty of Transportation Sciences of the CTU in Prague launched a new campaign "Move the Future" for secondary school students last autumn. As part of the campaign, a new intuitive web portal Rozhýbej budoucnost (Move the Future) was also launched together with Faculty of Transportation Sciences of CTU in Prague, which has seen great interest since its launch, especially from young people and applicants for studies.
