When I see Arthur Orsini's name on a conference session schedule, I circle it because I always learn something new. His presentations are not to be missed. If we be- came more familiar with Orsini's theories and methods, every school would be led by a team of empowered and enthusiastic student leaders and our jobs would be much easier.

I have been inspired by Arthur Orsini’s innovative work on children and youth transport for several years and I have witnessed his enthusiasm and expertise at transport conferences in Australia.

What sets Mr. Orsini apart is his clear passion for working with youth. All of his resources and insights are clearly the product of years of hardwork and dedication to encouraging youth not only to be more physically active but also to more actively engaged ... I would without any hesitation encourage groups who’s work with youth touches upon issues of sustainable transport and youth engagement to consider employing Mr. Orsini’s wealth of knowledge to their benefit. It would be money well spent.
