The Global Shapers Community is a network of Hubs developed and led by young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities.
The Dubai Hub consists of more than 30 exceptionally talented shapers committed to improving the present and future of our community. What makes our hub unique is the diversity of our shapers' backgrounds and nationalities, representing, alongside a solid Emirati base, fields such as consulting, energy, art, politics, finance, government, health care, media and entrepreneurship. From CEOs to art curators, from successful entrepreneurs to heads of ministry cabinets, all our shapers share a passion for social work and commitment to help Dubai on its journey to affirm itself as one of the most innovative cities in the world. The Hub’s projects currently focus on amplifying already existing initiatives together with our partners that have a positive impact on the city with a particular emphasis on youth empowerment, mostly on aspects related to career mentoring and education, sustainability and innovation. Always with an eye to challenges in the MENA region across different sectors, from political stability, to human capital development, youth unemployment, and inclusive economic growth we aim at being a resonating platform for cross-hub projects and bringing together the key players to brainstorm ideas and insights on how to tackle these challenges through innovative solutions and interventions.
