Welcome to the launch of our new website!

We hope that you will find our platform much more informative and interactive, and that you will continue to check in with us for updates on our projects. Our goal is to keep you informed on our activities through a number of blog posts, spotlight features, and via our many social media platforms (@yycshapers), and we encourage you to reach out to us with any comments, questions, or ideas that you might have.

Our hub, based in Calgary, is proud of our city and passionate about making it stronger and more vibrant. We continuously assess the issues our city is facing, and are driven to brainstorm and implement solutions that can help to tackle these issues one by one. 

If you are unfamiliar with Global Shapers, please check out our about us page, which will provide you with links for further reading. In short, Global Shapers is an initiative by the World Economic Forum, which aims to identify and assemble young leaders in their community, who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements, and their drive to make change. Each hub is encouraged to then identify issues in their communities (or globally), and to create and implement projects that will build those communities and bring them closer together.
With our newly developed website and a group of bright and enthusiastic shapers, we can’t wait to get started on making a valuable contribution to the community. 
While we have our own projects on the docket, we would love to collaborate with different groups within the city who may have similar goals and could use our help. Similarly, we are always on the lookout for new leaders who want to join in our mandate. If you would like to reach out to us, please use the contact page and send us a quick email!
