Shape North America 2018 Conference
Shape North America is a 5-day summit that brings together World Economic Forum Global Shapers from around the world.
ShapeNA 2018 in Sacramento will be a new experience for Shapers: disrupting and inspiring. Shapers will gain key skills and takeaways that can be built upon in their own communities through the projects of their Hubs.
ShapeNA 2018 will provide an unexpected experience for Shapers that will propel them beyond their comfort zone and into a space of action, growth, and relationship building.
Global Shaper Capitol Forum is an initiative to help connect California-based Global Shapers to the policy and political arena. Sacramento, which is a global epicenter of policy solutions and revolutionary thinking, is often overlooked as a critical player and partner to advance ideas and problem-solve.
Our aim is to change this dynamic. We want to build and strengthen the relationship between young innovators, entrepreneurs and activists and the platforms and people who can support and accelerate their goals.
Global Shapers Annual Survey
The Global Shapers Annual Survey empowers the voices of youth by encouraging leaders to consider youth-identified priorities to guide policy and decision making. The survey is developed by young people for young people. Results from the survey will help decision/policy makers understand a variety of subjects from the perspective of young leaders in the region– and the Sacramento Hub is serving as a 2017 survey affiliate to help gather responses and ensure high levels of participation.
Greece Refugee Project
Since the beginning of 2015 almost one million people have passed through the coast of Turkey into the Greek islands, trying to reach safety in Europe. This is the largest population displacement in recent history, and one of the major humanitarian crises Europe has faced since World War II.
A couple of our Hub Members traveled from California to Greece to work with several refugee organizations. We also raised over $8,000 where we donated to local non profits and NGO’s in Greece dealing with the refugee community.
Project Moss gives Sacramento the opportunity to be reminded of its beauty, hidden in plain sight. The Sacramento Global Shapers are currently making living art out of moss at three locations in midtown.
The concept is simple – we volunteer with a different nonprofit organization in
Sacramento on the second Saturday of every month. This program was created to give young professionals the opportunity to volunteer in the community.
If you would like to join us next month please email us at email@example.com.
The project had one goal: Raise awareness of the value of blood donations as a simple lifesaving act. Our Hub launched a week long social media initiative to encourage members of our community to donate blood at different donation centers around the city.
Sac Shapers for Haiti
In October 2016, Haiti was devastated by a category 4 hurricane. In the hardest hit region, 80% of the homes were damaged. Over 350,000 people throughout the country were in need of immediate assistance. Our Hub raised $4,300 in 7 days with the help of 73 members our community. 300 students were sent back to school with kits comprised of solar lamps, pens, pencils, notebooks, and backpacks
The 4 liter challenge
The DIGDEEP 4Liters challenge was a social media initiative to raise awareness about water consumption habits and how to change them. During the month, the Hub encouraged the public via social media to take the challenge: use just 4 Liters of water for 24 hours.
