World Economic Form Global Shapers: Application for the Vancouver Hub
The Global Shapers Community, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, is a network of city-based Hubs led by young people between 20 and 30 years of age. They are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a positive contribution to their communities.

Through the unparalleled convening power of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers are diverse in demographics, geographical areas, and sectors. However, it is united by a common desire to channel the members’ tremendous energy and enthusiasm into building a more peaceful, dynamic, and inclusive world.

The Vancouver Hub of the Global Shapers Community aims to serve our city by pooling the minds of the best and brightest young minds, henceforth providing a new lens for solving its greatest challenges. Check out some of the projects we've been working on here:
