Edinburgh Hub

The Edinburgh Hub is a pioneering community of young leaders that connects potential and generates practical solutions to maximise social impact


Our mission is threefold:

We will sustain a welcoming, authentic, empowering community that attracts diverse and committed members who exemplify our values

We will facilitate mutually beneficial collaborations and encourage activism

We will act locally and think globally; learning about and sharing best practice


In the Edinburgh Hub: 

We are collaborative. We create common goals and communicate effectively to achieve them as a team

We are curious. We innovate, investigate and are hungry to learn. We think outside the box, creating innovative solutions to key problems. We help each other develop

We are committed. We focus on our objectives, using our individual skills to work towards achieving our collective vision

We generate impact. We take practical actions towards solving society's most pressing problems, using evidence to ensure we make a meaningful difference in our community and beyond

We have integrity. We stay true to our personal values whilst we engage with our Hub, city and Global Shaper communities. We are honest; unwaveringly adhering to the highest moral principles
