Lisbon Hub

The Lisbon Hub is a cohort of young and humble individuals fully dedicated to contributing to the solution of problems within their wider community and region. Members' backgrounds range from law, entrepreneurship, finance and art, enabling the space for projects and impact in diverse areas areas. The Hub' main focus is education. Our current projects are:

Global Dignity Day: consists of a two-hour training on the subject of dignity, directed to students in primary and high school. It takes place in the month of October and is a day celebrated around the world. In 2018, this inititiave reached more than 4000 students in underprivileged schools around the country.

Observador Opinião: Lisbon Shapers have partnered with theObservador newspaper and are invited to provide their opinion on a relevant topic of national politics. The piece provides a platform to voice issues to improve Portugal. Check the articles here.

Boost Impact: was born with the goal of using collective knowledge and the community of shapers and their networks to support high-impact initiatives in Portugal. We organize a monthly event focus on one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and we have chosen 2 social startups / organizations to pitch their main biggest challenges. Participants then provide ideas and resources to support the organizations. 

"100 Oportunidades": this project aims to give voice to young people in the media, making sure people our age can voice problems and solutions to the most current topics.
