There has never been a time of greater promise, or greater peril.  – Prof. Klaus Schwab

The awarded grant includes workshop fees only, and does not include travel, accommodation and other costs incurred by the awarded recipient.

Shaping Davos is a conversation that features local solutions to global issues. #shapingdavos brings the world to Davos and Davos to the world through a series of live events hosted by the Global Shapers Community using two-way live streaming. Shaping Davos connects cities from around the world to discuss topics related to the theme of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters. Community-wide local activities provide viewers with unprecedented access to insights from cities and issues in every major region of the world. The local activities will also ensure that the local community has the opportunity to move the issue forward locally.

In 2015 & 2016 Kano hub was selected among the few hubs to host #shapingdavos with the theme Building Trust in Public Private Partnership (2015) and Shaping Sustainability (2016).
