What is the Global Shapers Community?
Born out of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is a network of inspiring young people working together to address local, regional, and global challenges. In each city, teams of Shapers self-organize to create projects that address the needs of their community. Projects are wide-ranging – from responding to disasters and combating poverty, to fighting climate change and building inclusive communities. Shapers are diverse in expertise, education, income and race, but are united by their desire to bring about change.

In Ukraine, young people (those who 14-35 years) constitute nearly one third of the population. Ukrainian youth is characterized by a rather high educational level and civil activity. However, so far, its voice has been relevant mostly only locally. For the Kyiv Hub it was both a pleasure and honour to endorse the views of young Ukrainians globally and to represent Ukraine through the Global Shapers Survey.
