Global Shapers Zurich, the Zurich Hub of the Global Shapers Community!
Global Shapers Zurich is the Zurich Hub of the Global Shapers Community, a global network of approximately 380 city-based hubs developed and led by young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities. Initiated by the World Economic Forum (WEF), the Global Shapers Community seeks to unite young leaders between 20 and 30 years old who want to develop their leadership potential towards serving society. To that end, the hubs undertake local or national projects to improve their communities and the state of the world.
Founded in 2012 and legally organised as an Swiss Association with its seat in Zurich, Global Shapers Zurich is made up of a multidisciplinary team of distinct pioneers in their fields, professionally ranging from social entrepreneurship to science and from business to sports and medicine. This diversity represents the dynamism and variety of Zurich, and each member contributes with their different skills to the projects and challenges that the Zurich Hub tackles. Global Shapers Zurich is born out of the desire to make things happen. It wants to channel its energy in creating synergies within a strong community of young actors, determined to maximize the potential of Zurich as a multicultural and thrilling European city. Global Shapers Zurich works together with different stakeholders that share its vision to leverage the impact.
