The Global Shapers Community is a network of hubs developed and led by young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities. It brings together young people between 20 and 30 who are making an impact in their communities on issues of social and economic development and sustainability.

The initiative came when several shapers participated in one of the meetings of the World Economic Forum and the listened to the Nissan Corporate Director talk about the company’s electric car.

The Global Shapers Coordinator of the San José Hub, Andrea San Gil , explained that the talk made ​​them think about the possibility of enabling  green taxi services in cities of the world, so that those without access to vehicles can have the experience of an electric vehicle and raise awareness.

The electric taxi project has already been implemented in cities like Switzerland and New York, thanks to Global Shapers and Nissan and the work of the young group of people making contact with taxi companies and getting them the appropriate forms of financing.
