We are becoming increasinlgy aware that solutions to our global challenges must purposefully engage youth, at all levels - locally, regionally, and globally. This generation has the passion, dynamism, and entrepreneurial spirit to shape the future.
What we do
Empowering youth to bridge global knowledge with local challenges is at the core of the Global Shapers Minsk Hub's mission. We uphold Belarus' engagement in regional and global development processes and work on improving the country's image in the international community. We are confident that intelligent, passionate, and hard-working youth is one of the main drivers of positive change in Belarus.
Since its founding in 2015, Minsk Hub has established partnerships with important stakeholders inside and outside Belarus and carried out a number of projects and initiatives. Our priorities include educational and enablement programs promoting youth employment and entrepreneurship, adoption of digital trends and technologies, breaking down social barriers, and forming of eco-friendly, inclusive, and tolerant society.
