Global Citizenship Hubs

Hubs are location-based, collaborative efforts to forge together a group of diverse individuals who join hands to be social agents of change in their communities. Based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN), their activities aim to culminate in a noticeable change at the grassroot level.

A Global Citizenship hub is the epicentre of global citizenry of an area. It is both a geographical and social entity for global changemakers to meet, brainstorm and innovate solutions to effect change in their localities. By leveraging the collective expertise and experience, it is possible to make a greater impact and undertake visible changes than as individuals!

Why do we establish local hubs?

Local hubs are spaces for individuals to air their voices and exchange ideas to create outcomes as a  product of collaboration and shared efforts. They serve as a bridge between the universal values propagated by global citizenship and local communities who harbour their own aspirations. We believe that any motivated individual with the desire to disrupt the status quo in order to enhance the well being of humankind and our planet can start his/her own hub to create a flourishing community of global citizenship leaders! 

Grassroots Impact at our Local Hubs

Our Local Hubs are the sources of impacts which influence and galvanise local communities to solve their own problems in a sustainable, inclusive manner. We believe in a multi stakeholder approach and solutions which involve local participants. You need not be a global person to solve global issues ; doing small acts of social change within your community has a multiplier effect which can create ripples of actions throughout the world!
