The Global Shapers Community is a network of young changemakers who are exceptional in their potential, achievement and drive to make a contribution to their local communities.
OUR THREE MAIN PILLARS:
1) We work together towards positive social impact. As Global Shapers, we work together on community-oriented projects.
2) We are a global network of over 8,500+ members across 400+ Hubs in cities around the world. We connect and learn from each other locally; we host visiting Shapers in Ottawa from other Hubs, and we bond with local Shapers whenever we travel outside of Ottawa.
3) We represent young people at the table. Over half of the world’s population is under the age of 27.
AS A GLOBAL SHAPER, YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO:
– Belong to a global network of outstanding young leaders who collaborate closely to shape a better future, engaging with the broader community;
– Further develop leadership skills and capabilities through Hub projects, meetings, and informal gatherings;
– Actively initiate and contribute to local, regional, and global initiatives, towards improving the state of the world.
