Canberra Hub

The Global Shapers Community Canberra, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, is a group of young Canberrans from all walks of life, drawn together by our demonstrated commitment to improving our communities. We have representation from business, academia, education, government, NGO's, Not-for-Profits and star ups.


Our members work to improve gender equality, end violence against women, engage youth with international affairs, create banks for refugees and more. We meet regularly in a close and supportive environment to learn together, and leverage each other’s expertise and networks to amplify our social impact.
