Apply to be a Global Shaper

Global Shapers are highly motivated individuals who have a great potential for future leadership roles in society. They are selected on the basis of their achievements, leadership potential, and commitment to make a difference. 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. Global Shapers are united by a common desire to channel the members’ tremendous energy and enthusiasm into building a more peaceful and inclusive world.

The Stuttgart Hub meets once a month, with other optional events. Additionally, members work together to design impactful projects that benefit the local community and work together on broader initiatives with other hubs from around the world. Members are expected to attend at least half of the Hub’s meetings and participate in at least one project under the aegis of the Stuttgart Hub. We are committed to creating a diverse community that unites people from all backgrounds, fields, and perspectives.

The selection process will be carried out by the current members of the Stuttgart Hub, based on your age, experience and ability to attend the Stuttgart Shapers Hubs meeting. We would love to hear from you!
