Kozhikode Hub

Situated along the Malabar Coast, Kozhikode city holds immense historical significance as a trading hub and cultural melting pot. Today, our city is at the crossroads of tradition and innovation, providing a unique platform for us to address pressing challenges and harness opportunities in various domains.


Within the Kozhikode Hub, we focus on key areas of work that align with our coastal setting and regional context. Environmental conservation takes center stage as we strive to preserve the pristine beauty of our coastal ecosystem, protect marine life, and promote sustainable practices for a greener future. Our efforts extend to coastal resilience, where we develop strategies to mitigate the impacts of climate change and natural disasters on our vulnerable coastal communities.


Recognizing the importance of education and skill development, we actively engage in initiatives that empower local youth through educational programs, vocational training, and entrepreneurship support. By nurturing talent and fostering innovation, we aim to create a skilled workforce capable of driving economic growth and social progress in Kozhikode.

Furthermore, as a coastal city with a rich heritage, we embrace cultural exchange and community engagement. Through projects that celebrate diversity, promote inclusivity, and preserve our cultural traditions, we strengthen the social fabric of Kozhikode, fostering a sense of unity and pride among its residents.

Together, as members of the Kozhikode Hub, we are passionate about shaping a future where sustainability, inclusivity, and innovation go hand in hand. By collaborating with local stakeholders, government bodies, and our global network of Global Shapers, we strive to create lasting impact and inspire positive change in Kozhikode and beyond!
