Adelaide Hub

Adelaide's Global Shapers Hub is comprised of young, passionate and diverse members spanning across multiple sectors and professions. We are very proud of our home city that is leading in climate change action, a destination for many international students, growing its innovation and entrepreneurial sector, diverse in its festival and art offerings and one of the most livable cities in the world. Formed in 2018, the Hub aims to make a contribution to our city and is currently working with other stakeholders in Adelaide on projects related to cross-cultural collaboration, the future of education, and the business opportunities of sustainability. United by optimism, our collaborative efforts aim to further enhance Adelaide's economic, social and environmental performance as one of the world's best middle-sized cities. Check out our podcast, and other initiatives:

We encourage applications all year round and will assess them during our annual recruitment drive (check our Instagram and Facebook for details each year!). Apply through the link at the bottom of our website:
