The young generation has the passion, dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit to shape the future. The Global Shapers Community is a network of dynamic, entrepreneurial and socially-engaged young leaders aged between 20 and 29 from across the world. Since 2011, when the community was first founded, more than 6,400 Global Shapers have joined the Community. They are organized into city-based hubs and have committed to working together to make a positive and tangible impact through local projects in over 450 cities.
Global Shapers Oslo (GSO) is part of the Global Shapers Community of the World Economic Forum, and is Norway's only hub. GSO was established by HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit in 2012 and today consists of 14 young executives and 7 alumni with diverse backgrounds in entrepreneurship, management, law, medicine, IT, etc. It is a goal for GSO to be a diverse group so that members can contribute different perspectives, experiences and knowledge. The purpose of GSO is to work on projects initiated by the hub which create positive impact in the local community, as well as contribute to the members' own projects.
