The Global Shapers Community is a network of city-based Hubs developed and led by young leaders between 20 and 30 years who want to develop their leadership potential towards serving society. To that end, Hubs undertake local projects to improve their communities.
Who else thinks this is a great match with the Nudge Global Leadership Challenge? Nudge foresees a rewarding collaboration with the Global Shapers, as many of our values coincide!
So, who are those so-called ‘Global Shapers’? Shapers are highly motivated individuals who have a great potential for future leadership roles in society. They are selected on the basis of their achievements, leadership potential, and commitment to make a difference. Through the Global Shapers Community, Shapers are provided with opportunities to connect with the worldwide network of Global Shapers, to network with other World Economic Forum communities, and to represent the voice of youth at World Economic Forum events. Shapers are united by a common desire to channel the members’ tremendous energy and enthusiasm into building a more peaceful and inclusive world.
The Global Shapers Community is one of several multi-stakeholder communities at the World Economic Forum. Other communities include the Young Global Leaders, the Global Agenda Councils, and the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs. And this year they will fulfill a special role during the Global Challenge, too! Our participants will have the opportunity to get to know the Global Shapers and learn about their Community, because they are members of our jury!
