Building A Movement through Grassroots Network
The Global Shapers Community is a network of inspiring young people under the age of 30, driving dialogue, action and change through solution building and policy making. With more than 13,000 members, the Global Shapers Community spans over 448 city-based hubs in 150 countries working to address local, regional and global challenges. In each city, a team of shapers create projects addressing needs of their communities, from responding to disaster and combating poverty to fighting climate change and building inclusive communities. Shapers are diverse in expertise, education, income and race but are united by their desire to bring about change.
Shapers and the World Economic Forum
Born out of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is a non- profit organisation registered in Geneva, Switzerland and was founded by Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum in 2011. The goal is to empower young people to play an active role in shaping local, regional and global agendas. The Forum’s contribution to the shapers includes significant financial and in-kind contributions for operational support including staff time, technology tools and opportunities to interact and collaborate with its membership networks.
