Global Shapers Community Celebrating a Decade of Impact

Driving Action to Achieve the Global Goals

A decade ago, the Global Shapers Community was created with the mission of empowering young people by amplifying their voices around the world and enabling them to self-organize to implement projects for their local communities.

It is vital that young people are represented in important global issues; they are key stakeholders and should be central to solution-building, policy-making and effecting lasting change.

This global community of young change-makers, aged between 18 and 30, is taking action to improve the state of the world, one local community at a time. Global Shapers are progressing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, that serve as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030.

Now, more than ever, we need their energy and vision to tackle the formidable, but not insurmountable, challenges ahead.

This report explains in detail what makes the Global Shapers Community unique, highlights the Community’s individual and collective impact over the past decade and invites stakeholders around the globe to join the movement for the years ahead.
