#shapersacm Media Team 2015

This week, from 13 to 17 August 2015, over 450 curators will gather together in Geneva for the Global Shapers Annual Curators Meeting (ACM), hosted and organized by the World Economic Forum (WEF). Every year, the ACM aims to energize and strengthen the Global Shapers community. The curators of each city hub in the network have the opportunity to exchange project ideas, interact with WEF staff on pressing global issues, and strengthen cross-hub links.

For the Geneva Hub, this will be an important week, and this year more so, given the exceptional supporting role that it will be playing. In fact, the Geneva Shapers are proud to announce that, for the first time, they have been tasked to assist the Forum in its Media activity during the ACM. More specifically, the hub established an ACM Media Team, composed by about 20 of its shapers and structured in the following way:

This team will focus its work on three main areas:

  • Production of an informative, fun, and easy to read daily ACM Magazine

  • Organization of social events for the curators, to get to know each other better and let them discover Geneva

  • Social media action, to engage shapers at home and inspire those outside the community


The daily ACM Magazine will provide curators with a recap of the previous day, in-depth interviews with some Young Global Leaders (who will be also in Geneva from 10 to 14 August for the YGL Annual Summit), interviews with other fellow curators, information on upcoming events, what to do in Geneva, and much more.

In order to prepare for this special week, the Geneva Hub organized an intensive weekend retreat at the Maison de la Paix, thanks to the continued hospitality of Interpeace. Everyone in the team put a lot of energy and passion in the different preparation activities: from writing articles, to graphic design, video training, social media, and interviews scheduling, just to mention a few.

The Geneva Hub Media Team is very excited to welcome all the amazing curators attending the ACM and is looking forward to continue shaping the world together.
