The Power of Youth in Action
Born out of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is a network of inspiring young people under the age of 30 working together to address local, regional and global challenges. With more than 10,000 members, the Global Shapers Community spans 400 city-based hubs in 155 countries.
Jaipur, a city of deep historical depth and a vibrant contemporary culture, is a petri-dish of feverish experimentation in civic engagement, enterprise, and the creative arts. The Jaipur Hub, for this reason, is made up of an expanding network of entrepreneurs, academics, artists, and social sector professionals. Knowing that our world is experiencing parallel global disruptions, Jaipur’s Shapers are building on the city’s rich legacy through initiatives in heritage and conservation, the arts and crafts, public health, and gender equity. We see ourselves as a bridge between Jaipur’s cosmopolitan, entrepreneurial past, and a future committed to sustainability and equity through community engagement and edgy experimentation.
