About this Event

The Global Shapers Community

The Global Shapers Community, an initiative by the World Economic Forum, is a network of Hubs globally developed and led by young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities.

The London Hub seeks to identify, inspire and support diverse communities of young people committed to driving positive change both locally and globally.

The Catapult Project

The Global Shapers London Hub aims to deliver a three-pronged programmatic approach for 16-25 year olds, with technical skills training and interactive workshops such as c.v writing, interview preparation, negotiations skills and meditation for sustained personal and professional development in tech.
