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.
Welcome... to the Medellin global shapers community
The Medellin Hub is a dynamic community that is constantly collaborating, sharing resources and expanding our collective intelligence. We can say our Hub is truly representative of our city because of its diversity: Shapers from every socio-economical background, field, race, religion converge to make our Hub integral. Medellin is a city that needs articulation and engagement among the different communities and sectors, therefore our aim is to foster citizenship, understanding a citizen as someone who actively shapes her/his city through her/his passions in collective efforts: collaborating and co-creating. We have deployed campaigns -Yo Voto Porque- promoting informed voting and youth participation that led to the Hub designing the last debate for the local elections in 2015. Our commitment to the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystems is always present and goes from hosting events to running hackathons where we create and incubate startups and collective solutions to the city’s biggest issues.We had the pleasure of hosting SHAPE LATAM 2016, strengthening the bonds between the Latin Hubs and developing strategic alliances for the future of the community in our region.
