The Fukuoka Hub is made up of exceptionally talented and diverse young people committed to shaping our community and laying the groundwork for a better future.
Our mission is to create change in the real world by expanding and accelerating the work of young people to create a more prosperous society.
The Hub enables youth to be a voice for the future in local, regional and global thought processes and a catalyst of entrepreneurship in the global public interest.
More specifically, the objectives are founded on three key pillars – impact, interaction and insight.
Impact: The Hub will have impact by catalyzing and enhancing, individually and collectively, fresh ideas and innovative solutions to their communities most pressing challenges. Shapers will be engaged in projects related to specific challenges identified by the local Hub and by the Global Shapers team.
Interaction: The Hub will be vitalized by the many interactions generated within the Hub, between Hubs and on a global level. Complementing face-to-face meetings, emphasis will also be placed on the virtual dimension – enabling Shapers to collaborate and learn from each other and through the Forum’s members and constituents.
Insight: The Hub will create value – together with the Global Shapers Community – by providing Shapers with the knowledge and insights that engender a better understanding of the global, regional, local, and industry agendas.
