Phoenix Hub

The Phoenix Hub aims to eradicate some of Arizona's greatest problems, and have fun while doing so!


Past projects have focused on young professional development and food insecurity across the valley. More recently, the hub has been focused on a holistic path towards sustainability, detailed below. As our membership grows and cycles, our focus will continue to adapt and evolve to anything that can improve the Phoenix region. Interested in joining? Apply under the member directory. Let's make Phoenix better, together.

Grow Some Shade 🌳

Low-income communities and communities of color are disproportionately impacted by extreme heat, being more likely to suffer extreme heat injury and death, even though they are responsible for fewer carbon emissions that further global warming. Planting trees in communities lacking adequate shade coverage can help keep the community cooler and slow greenhouse gases warming the atmosphere. In partnership with The Climate Reality Project, the Phoenix Hub is working to Grow Some Shade in our community!


Hikes for Healing 🥾

Join Phoenix Shapers for the Hikes for Healing series, a transformative project dedicated to fostering mental well-being, forging connections, and restoring the natural beauty of Arizona hiking trails. Hikes for Healing is a hiking series, led by Phoenix Shapers partnering with local park management, that cleans your mind while cleaning litter from our local parks and trails. Trash bags, buckets, gloves, and grabbers are provided, you just need to bring yourself! By merging the goals of environmental stewardship and personal well-being, we aim to create a positive impact that extends beyond the trail and will have a lasting impact. Look for future Hikes for Healings events on our Eventbrite.


SDG World Tour ♻️

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. Phoenix Shapers are exploring the SDGs through our SDG World Tour. Each month, for 17 months, the Phoenix hub focuses on one of the SDGs and works to further that goal in the Phoenix region. By thinking globally and acting locally, Phoenix shapers partner with local non-profits and organizations to make a more sustainable Phoenix. View our SDG World Tour work here.
