We are young millennial leaders impacting, engaging and shaping Orlando into a sustainable city for the future. Committed to improving the state of the world, our city and humanity.



Empowered by the World Economic Forum, the Orlando Global Shapers will provide leadership and representation through:

  • Community initiatives addressing local and international societal needs.

  • Policy and research initiatives to promote the viewpoints of the "Shaper Generation" to influence local and international discourse and decision making.



Global Shapers Community is an initiative of the World Economic Forum and is a network of young people driving dialogue, action and change. The Orlando Hub was established in 2013 by Founding Curator Nilmarie Zapata, as a way to bring young leaders in Orlando together to improve the state of the world. The first class of Shapers were inaugurated in the Spring of 2014.
