Manila Hub

The Manila Hub was the first Global Shapers Hub in the Philippines and one of the earliest hubs to be formed in the world. Our mission is to develop and nurture diverse young leaders who channel their energy and enthusiasm to shape a peaceful, prosperous and inclusive world starting with Manila. We are a diverse collective of young leaders. From internationally awarded directors to public school teachers. From doctors to board game designers. We span different industries creating programs and projects within our four focus areas: mobility, policy, climate change, and human trafficking.
