Alexandria Hub

Global Shapers Alexandria Hub is part of the international network of the Global Shapers Community, an initiative founded by the World Economic Forum. The hub comprises a group of University students and young professionals with diverse backgrounds and multiple expertise; who are devoted to tackling existing developmental challenges in the Alexandrian community.

United in our aim and leveraging our diversity, we have managed, since 2014, to address numerous impact areas; on top of which came the protection of the planet and reskilling for the future of the local community. Through partnerships with various leading organizations I.e. Goethe institut, Swedish institute,.etc) and stakeholders in the community, we have successfully undertaken over 30 projects and activities that have had a positive impact on more than five thousand individuals.

Some of these projects include: 

- "Lead Your Future”: a recurring project that has taken place in 2014, 2017, 2019 and 2020, which aims to assist highschool students in making informed decisions when it comes to choosing their educational paths in different universities, and envisioning their careers.

- "Peace Hack MENA camp": a five-day international boot camp organized by the members of Alexandria hub, in collaboration with the Swedish Institute and Ice Alex.The boot camp aimed “ to explore alternative forms of peace talks that ultimately harness the power of technology, innovation and youth entrepreneurship.” And to ultimately enhance the role of social entrepreneurship in the achievement of the different SDGs.

- "Teachers Go Digital": a digital literacy project which took place in 2022, through which sessions on the usage of Microsoft word, and Google meets were given to  teachers in a Syrian association; to help them cope with the virtual educational environment that was imposed due to Covid-19.
