Amsterdam Hub

We are the Amsterdam Hub of the Global Shapers Community, the worldwide community for leaders between 20-33 years old of the World Economic Forum. Our mission is to help each other realize our dreams for a better society. We empower and strengthen initiatives that improve our local and global communities by providing them energy, ideas and access. "Each other" are now Amsterdam Shapers, and we want to extend this to Shapers worldwide and anyone in Amsterdam with a great initiative. Our key focus areas are sustainability, social empowerment and applied science. Since we started in 2011, we have completed two projects and are working on two others.
