Global Shapers 

Alongside the Global Shaper values, our Hub's core values lie at the heart of our mission. These values are expected to be upheld by Edinburgh Hub members when carrying out Global Shapers activities.

  • We are curious. We innovate, investigate and are hungry to learn. We think outside the box, creating innovative solutions to key problems.
  • We are committed. We consistently use our individual skills to further our collective vision.  We focus on the goal, using our individual skills to work towards achieving our collective vision.
  • We generate impact. We take practical actions towards solving society‚Äôs most pressing problems, ensuring that we make a meaningful difference in our community and beyond.
  • We have integrity. We stay true to our personal values whilst we engage with the wider Hub, our city and Global Shaper communities. We are honest; unwaveringly adhering to the highest moral principles.
