New Delhi Hub

The Global Shapers Community, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, is a network of young people driving dialogue, action and change globally through their local hub projects and initiatives. Shapers are selected on the basis of their achievements, leadership potential, and commitment to make a difference.

The community encompasses 10,000 Shapers on 400 Hubs across 150+ Countries across the world. These city based Hubs, led by young leaders between 20 and 30 years, undertake local projects to improve the state of the world, locally and globally.

As one of the earliest Global Shapers Community Hubs in India, the New Delhi Hub, as the capital city, has garnered an interesting profile of Shapers and undertaken myriad initiatives.

We are guided by the principles and values of the World Economic Forum and the Global Shapers Community worldwide: multi-stakeholderism, intersectionality & inclusion. Collaboration, convergence and harmonization is central to our hub model. We partner with individual and institutional sector specialists and impact driven local organizations. Our current thematic focus aligns with the three impact areas of our community: Climate Change, Equity and Inclusion, Education and Entrepreneurship. Hub activities are non-political, non-partisan and focus on larger public good.
