Victoria Hub

The Global Shapers presence in the small island developing state of the Seychelles is represented by the Victoria Hub, made up of a team of young leaders committed to creating meaningful community impact and truly inclusive and thriving communities.

We are a diverse and talented team whose experiences span across the worlds of conservation, business, technology, government, environment, media and civil society.  We have spearheaded several grassroots initiatives, notably: youth mentoring sessions, gender equity dialogues, civic empowerment sessions with vulnerable young women, and facilitating youth-led talkshows on national television. This year, thanks to a UNDP grant, we will be leading a Youth Environmental Leaders programme where we give soft skills to future environment leaders in Seychelles. Our members actively participate in and attend regional and Forum-led events, to ensure that the voices of citizens living in small-island developing states are also heard. 

If you are a part of the Forum's community and are visiting our beautiful islands, we would love to connect with you! Message us on TopLink or fill in our Visitor's Book so that we can get in touch! You can also follow our updates on Facebook by clicking here and Liking our Page.
