Washington D.C. I Hub

The Global Shapers presence in Washington D.C. is comprised of two Hubs, each a unique collection of Shapers with their own identity and purpose. However, we proudly operate as “Two Hubs, One Community” both internally and externally as we believe both Hubs working together in unison yields the greatest impact for Washington D.C. and beyond.

Our Hubs’ goal has been to affect change at a local level in the D.C. community – something often overlooked amidst the national headlines traditionally dedicated to federal government and politics – with a wide range of 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 that is constantly developing due to our position within the heart of the United States’ capital city.

Are you a Shaper visiting Washington D.C. soon? We’d love to see you! Please fill out this form and we’ll be in touch shortly:
