What is the Global Shapers Community?
The Global Shapers Community, under the World Economic Forum, is a network of city-based Hubs developed and led by young leaders between 20 and 30 years old who have a calling to develop their passion and leadership potential towards serving their society. To that end, Hubs undertake local projects and sometimes collaborate with other communities to bring development to their communities. Shapers are highly motivated individuals who have a great potential for future leadership roles in society within specific, chosen area. They are selected on the basis of their commitment to passion, achievements, leadership potential, and willingness to make a difference through local wisdom and global perspectives.
Through the Global Shapers Community, Shapers are provided with opportunities to connect with the worldwide network of Global Shapers, to network with other World Economic Forum communities, and to represent the voice of youth at World Economic Forum events. Shapers are united by a common desire to channel the members’ tremendous energy and enthusiasm into building a more peaceful and inclusive world. Read more at

We are currently helping in rebuilding Kabui Khullen, the epicentre of the January earthquake in Manipur. We also host a series called ‘Meet Your Idol’ in various schools where we connect young students to their idols. Another project ‘My Story For You’ brings exceptional stories of inspiring people in the local daily. The hub is planning to roll out new projects for 2016-17.
