We create a better Vancouver by

Born out of the World Economic Forum (WEF), the Global Shapers Community is a network of 378 city-based hubs in 160 countries working together to address local, regional and global challenges.

In Vancouver, we draw from young leaders in a variety of private, public, and non-profit sectors to help solve some of our city’s biggest challenges and drive the local implementation of WEF initiatives.

The Burnout Project

An adaptive series of workshops for young people to explore themes relating to preventing and managing burnout, self-care and doing socially impactful work in challenging times.

Shaping Cascadia

Shaping Cascadia is a cross-border initiative with the Seattle Shapers Hub to bring the voices of young leaders into the business, government, education, and innovation partnerships that are stitching BC, Washington, and Oregon as a unique global economic megaregion.

Millennial Advisory Council

We formed an advisory council for Science World, working to help make Science World and STEM learning initiatives more accessible to young people.

@ShapersVan We really appreciate it, @ShapersVan. Keep up the amazing and important work you do as well; more than ever, marginalized communities in our city need a platform for dialogue and ways in which to spark meaningful change!

We're honoured to have hosted a Reconciliation Dialogue Workshop in Chilliwack, BC for the YMCA! This special event was for youth 18-35. Thank you to #RBCFutureLaunch for helping us deliver workshops for youth: https://t.co/O3JFQ4ceU2 || More info on RDWs: https://t.co/83WVxjs4zB
