Portland Global Shapers Hub

Treehouse Institute founder, Adam Burk, was asked by the World Economic Forum to be the founding curator of the Portland, Maine Global Shaper Hub in June, 2015.   Through an application process, 20 people were selected to be founding members of the hub.

The Global Shapers Community is an initiative of the World Economic Forum, a nonprofit foundation headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, committed to improving the state of the world through public-private cooperation while remaining independent and not tied to special interests.  The World Economic Forum purposefully engages young leaders to build solutions that shape the future.

The Portland Global Shapers Hub aims to cultivate an inclusive, sustainable, and resilient city whose residents are invested in the welfare of Portland.
