Recently, the World Economic Forum has noticed that a Beijing based company named Mojing Shidai claims that it is authorised to nominate candidates for the 2021 cohort of Global Shapers, with a charge of 150,000 RMB per member.
Hereby, the World Economic Forum would like to stress that the World Economic Forum has no association with the afore-mentioned company. In addition, the World Economic Forum never authorizes any organization/agency to nominate candidates for Global Shapers Hubs or hold business events of any sort.
Born out of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is a network of sub-communities founded and led by inspiring young people between the age of 20 and 30. With their extraordinary development potential and career accomplishments, these youth leaders are committed to contributing to the community development. The projects organized by Shapers can positively affect their community and improve the community conditions. Every Shaper is selected by the local sub-community through a strict process, in which the broad representativeness of Shapers will be greatly considered. The selection of Global Shapers does not involve any costs.
Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the World Economic Forum, committed to improving the state of the world, is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. Our flagship events include the Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, (also known in China as Winter Davos), and the Annual Meeting of the New Champions, held alternately between Tianjin and Dalian in China (also known in China as Summer Davos).
The World Economic Forum website, www.weforum.org, is the ultimate reference for information about Forum activities, initiatives, publications and affiliations. Organizations, events and activities that cannot be found on the Forum website have no association with the World Economic Forum or its offices in New York, Beijing and Tokyo.
