Edinburgh Hub

The Edinburgh Hub is a pioneering community of young leaders that connects potential and generates practical solutions to maximize 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 practices.

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 toward 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 the Global Shaper community. We are honest; unwaveringly adhering to the highest moral principles.
