The Global Shapers Community is energised by the many interactions generated inside each hub, between hubs and on a global level.
Local Hubs are established in major cities around the world. Joining the Global Shapers Community begins by joining a local hub. Local hubs are committed to local impact and are designed to be local in focus, activity and governance. Local Hubs interact and collaborate across borders on global or regional projects, to gain insight and impact the global dimension.
Local hubs are impartial and independent and therefore cannot be formed on any political, cultural, racial or religious basis. Each local hub is organized in an autonomous way and develops its own Guidelines.
Each hub develops its own activities/programming, including:
Each hub selects a «Curator» to act as the hub Chair. The Curator, together with the «past» Curator and the «next» Curator, form the Curatorship of each Hub and are responsible for governing its affairs and ensuring that its activities reflect positively on the Global Shapers Community and the World Economic Forum in the spirit of entrepreneurship in the global public interest.
The Global Hub is the aggregation of interactions between local hubs and focuses on increasing the profile and the exposure of individual Shapers or individual hubs at the global level
