Christchurch Hub

The Christchurch Global Shapers Hub is comprised of a small number of exceptional young people who come from diverse backgrounds, united by our passion to influence positive change through meaningful projects and harnessing the collective power of active citizenship.  

Between us, we are artists, lawyers, creatives, entrepreneurs, technologists, environmentalists, community connectors, and more.

We are a conduit for connecting change makers, channelling our energy and enthusiasm into curating a mixture of events and projects, to add value to our city and wider region, particularly in the context of sustainability and the post-earthquake city rebuild.

Officially we meet once a month, providing opportunities for personal and professional development, collaborate with the Auckland Hub to host at least one retreat annually and support the Australia / New Zealand network of Global Shapers Hubs.

Hub activities are non-political, non-partisan and always focussed on impact.


Our mission statement:

"To weave together our diverse skills and experience to actively contribute to a thriving, inclusive and connected Ōtautahi"


Our values:

- Community, connection & service

- Growth, learning & personal fulfilment

- Justice, equity, diversity & inclusion 

- Happiness, joy & silliness

- Kaitiakitanga & being part of the land - Te Ao Maori as a worldview


Applications are currently closed for the Christchurch Hub but will reopen in October 2022.
