Sydney Hub

The Sydney Global Shapers is part of the World Economic Forum's Global Shapers community which spans over 350 hubs representing nearly every country of the world.

In Sydney, the Shapers are a diverse community of extraordinary young professionals, with a shared passion to collaborate for local impact. We believe that by acting with integrity in the service of our local community, we will improve the state of the world.

We meet on a monthly basis to provide personal and professional development for members, plan two retreats a year and provide ongoing support to each other's projects.

Examples of recent Sydney projects include:

Feast of Strangers. Cultivating empathy and understanding between locals. Link.Startup WorkshopsSupporting the journey of early-stage entrepreneurs. Link.Social Good Summit. A one-day festival celebrating pioneers of social good. Link.

Sydney Hub is also passionate about supporting the Australia and New Zealand community and currently has two representatives on the ANZ Shapers board of directors.

If you'd like to join the Shapers, we strongly encourage you to apply.
