About

We're a Swiss non-profit association.

Global Shapers Zurich is the Zurich Hub of the Global Shapers Community, a global network of young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities. Initiated by the World Economic Forum (WEF), the Global Shapers Community seeks to unite purpose-driven people between 20 and 30 years old who want to develop their leadership potential towards serving society. To that end, the hubs undertake local or national projects to improve their communities and the world.
