History of the Global Shapers Community Perth
The Global Shapers Community Perth was founded in September 2013 after an extensive search for Perth’s brightest individuals with a passion for social impact. The Perth Hub brings together a diverse group of young people passionate about creating positive change who are selected based on their achievements, commitment and leadership potential. The Perth Hub meets monthly and has undertaken a range of projects achieving a social impact for the WA community.
Our Shapers have maintained an active regional presence playing pivotal roles in Asia-Pacific SHAPE events, the World Economic Forum on ASEAN and other local summits. The Hub has run more than fifteen events with a total attendance of around 700 young people. Our Shapers have directly assisted with the personal and professional development of 50 young West Australians.
