Become a Global Shaper

Global Shapers is a volunteer initiative launched by the World Economic Forum (WEF) to connect diverse, passionate young people in cities around the world. Each city’s hub self-organizes to address local, regional and global challenges – from disaster response and environmental sustainability, to fighting climate change, building inclusive communities, and more. The community consists of local hubs that are located in over 400 cities with more than 10,000 Shapers in total. The community’s mission is enabling youth to be a voice in the future of local, regional, and global thought processes and to propel youth to be catalysts of entrepreneurship in the global public interest.

As a community we have unique access and support from WEF but we are ultimately self-organised and our success as a hub depends on our members’ drive and demonstrated commitment for positive social and environmental impact.

What we're looking for

There are two basic eligibility criteria: you must be >= 18 years old and < 27 years old at the time of nomination; and you must live or work in Jaipur or have sufficiently strong ties to Jaipur to be able to fully participate in the hub’s activities.

Beyond this, we assess applications on four criteria:

  • Impact motivation: A core aspect of Shapers’ mission is to be a community that has a positive social and environmental impact in our communities and the world. We assume this can be manifested in many different ways, but we want candidates to be able to express their interests and how they make a difference (whether in their jobs or otherwise).
  • Commitment & Community Mindset: Active membership is Jaipur hub’s lifeblood. We require at least 1-2 hours a week for the hub, additional commitment to participate in local and regional activities and active leadership and/or involvement in hub projects. Please be aware of your willingness to commit and contribute to the hub—if you don’t have enough time or bandwidth, please be honest. We struggle with more awesome applicants each year than available spaces, and it’s crucial that every hub member contributes to our group.
  • Achievement: This varies by age and sector. We’re looking for candidates who have established a track record of leadership and demonstrated impact in their field, or who are firmly on a leadership trajectory.
  • Leadership Potential: Again, we calibrate potential depending on age and sector. We’re seeking people who can demonstrate potential to be leaders in their fields.

About us

The Global Shapers Community is a network of young people driving dialogue, action, and change. The community consists of local hubs that are located in over 400 cities with more than 10,000 Shapers in total. The community’s mission is enabling youth to be a voice in the future of local, regional, and global thought processes and to propel youth to be catalysts of entrepreneurship in the global public interest.

No. Global Shapers Hubs are fairly decentralized and do not receive funding from the WEF, with the exception of some project-specific application-based grants. A Shaper does not get paid by the Jaipur hub or the WEF in any form.

Global Shapers initiate activities to make an impact in multiple areas – ranging from diverse interests such as civic participation to gender equality, to sustainability and climate change. Our Hub’s activities fit into the three following major areas: 

  1. Climate and Environment 
  2. Education and Employment 
  3. Equity and Inclusion 

Even though we advocate for activities within these areas, our Hub is not limited to it. For specific project examples, you can visit www.globalshapersjaipur.com and www.globalshapers.org or contact us at globalshapersjaipur@gmail.com.
