Udupi Hub

The World Economic Forum's initiative Global Shapers has its presence in Udupi, Southern India. The hubs’ goal has been to affect change at a local level in the Udupi community – something often overlooked amidst the regional headlines traditionally dedicated to sustainability, climate action, state government and politics – with the projects focused around the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Additionally, we encourage our Shapers to be engaged in community-wide conversations, idea sharing, Forum events and frequent interaction with our international network, which is constantly developing due to our position within the coastal lines of India.


Are you a Shaper visiting Udupi soon? We’d love to see you! Please reach us at and we’ll be in touch shortly.
