Introduction We all know that the process of construction of a hub is not always easy. We went through this experience, and today we can proudly share some achievements and results that generated a dynamic form of operation and engagement among the members. There are many challenges ahead, but we can say that entering this road of learning and overcoming obstacles has been rewarding and transformative for all of us! We hope our story will inspire other shapers to design and structure of their hubs, and we also hope that other stories will be shared so that in the future we can arrive at a state-ofthe-art model that will be even more dynamic. After all, we are today a network of 260 hubs across the world! 9


We believe that sharing this process is of the utmost importance to the expansion of the Global Shapers community in the world, as well as an acceleration tool in order to advance the social impact of our cities. Over the last year, we have divided our story into 4 chapters:

10


Becoming friends In the first stage, we made our applications and we were selected by the WEF. Some knew each other and others did not, but we all became part of our own routine as a group. We classify this first moment as a time of integration, where we met each other and identified complementary skills.

Create a group identity. The establishment of informal environments, meetings and dinners helped us to get to know each other better and create a general empathy. 11


From the beginning, we realized that the diversity and multidisciplinary of the group were our main assets (“The roots of ourselves are the roots of the group�). Despite the complementary competencies, we were guided by values that bonded us together to a common desire for transformation. The respect for the ability of each member of the group promoted a horizontal structure, no hierarchy, with clear channels of communication and interaction.

Search for complementary and united group with com us a very dynamic 12


talents, but within a strong mon values. This provided and horizontal structure 13

Another important factor was counting on the support and mentoring of leaders from the WEF community. These leaders played an important role in structuring and consolidating the group, since they have helped us organize and understand the process of governance, principles and values of the WEF.

Seek mentoring, support and guidance from leaders of the WEF community in your country. They will guide the group in times of doubt and uncertainty. The guidance and participation of these leaders was critical on leveraging our projects, strengthening our network and our governance structure.

Invite an YGL from your country or city to engage in the design of projects and activities from your hub. It is essential that his or her participation be horizontal and active, where everyone will build together with a “hands on� attitude. Another important point in the construction of our hub was the participation of a shaper in the Shapers Curators at the Annual Meeting 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland. 16


17


Always consider on your hub calendar the WEF agenda of events. Attending events, meetings and forums can provide an opportunity to exchange, inspire, validate and expand your projects. To finish this first chapter: (integration between the members), it was essential to schedule weekly meetings on days and places defined as headquarters. In the case of our hub, two shapers made their office rooms available for our meetings and took turns holding the weekly meetings at these two locations. These dynamics, along with the creation of communication channels such as Google Groups, Dropbox, and Whatsapp have given us a fast set-up of our work. Among the five days of the week, one of them was always focused on the activities of the group!

Set a day and place for the meetings, which can be weekly, once every two weeks or monthly. This gives the flexibility and organization needed to set-up and engage the hub. 18

Freaking out and now What? At one point we came to this second chapter: what now? It was a period of extreme pressure and anxiety. We began to ask ourselves: what cause unites us? How can we impact our city, São Paulo? What projects will we run? Obviously these questions guided us from the beginning, but as we got to the point of defining our mission and values they have intensified. Amidst the whirlwind of ideas, one seemed to show us a way to help us structure our hub’s mission and vision: orientation meetings. This process involved the active participation of leaders of the WEF in Brazil who introduced us to their network of partners and supported us by organizing meetings with people of various backgrounds: social entrepreneurs, politicians, businessmen and community 20


leaders. They were the ones that could inspire and help us to clearly identify the needs of our community in S達o Paulo and Brazil. From that moment on we began to create a network of partners and mentors who would guide us along our way. It was these meetings and interactions that have helped us in structuring our ideas, building a clear vision, mission and values for the S達o Paulo hub.

{

More than just helping in the construction of a mission, the mentoring process is a building bridge between generations. It brings wisdom and discomfort. For us, the discomfort was the source of innovation.

21


Breathing and thinking: With the mentoring process we were able to broaden our minds. From this point on the project came almost naturally, as a way of expanding the conversations we have had during all of the meetings. We finally decided that we had reached the time to act, to put into practice an idea, although it seemed not be the “perfect and ideal” project. We felt that we needed to work together as a group in order to create a new rhythm and not to waste our time philosophizing on how we can change the world. It was during a mentoring meeting that someone came up with the idea: why not launch a Dignity Day in São Paulo? And so this was our first project as a hub. Even with the discomfort of some members that this was not “the project”, holding this event opened doors to great innovation.

22


Start small and with an activity as a group. Test the synergy of the group in action. This process allows the group to get to know each other better, and it may open new opportunities for other projects. By replicating a project that was already in progress, it allowed us to innovate. From an idea that was already established, we were able to complement the event with our own ideas and also adapt it in order to suit it into our country’s reality. We can assure that this adaptation and complementation of ideas was key to help us define our next steps.


Shaping our project:

From Slaves of Job to the Project! After successfully holding our first event, we knew that we had all the tools and network of people required to start a project with high social impact. With that, we realized that the best way for a realignment of the group was to have a strategic planning immersion for the group. The first step on building “with” and not “to” people is simply the way we incorporate the principle of dialogue and exchange of ideas. We have realized how powerful it is to brainstorm without judgment. This is a major step towards co-creation. With that, we were able to understand different worldviews and ideals of everyone in the group all underlying in the same foundation of values and principles. This was a very enriching experience. After these exercises, the next step was to create a real team! For this we made a group exercise of a Brazilian cooperative 24


game called: Slaves of Job. Although it is a childhood game and it seems easy is much more difficult than imagined, it involves a system of cooperation that if a person fails the whole group fails. In order to evolve as a group we must all grow together, it is at this point that emerges cooperation, help and teaching between each other. As the African proverb says: “If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together”. We want to go far! Finally, our planning retreat ended with a thought and assembly of our project! With much dialogue and teamwork, we realized that our vocation as a group is the multisciplinarity and the ability to build “with” and not just “for” the people and we highly believe on the youth as a potential transforming agent inside his own reality and community.

Spend a weekend immersed in strategic planning. Rescue the story of the group to create concrete proposals for the future. 25


Review your network and assets of the group. Surely taking from what we already have is much easier, faster and generates impact.

Strategic Planning

16.02.2013

Key thinking: build up with it and not for it. Catalysts of micro-changes and people!

27


Strategic planning was important because we could be focused around a common project. This process allowed us to put forward concrete ideas on paper and create a new model of organization: WGs (workgroups) on each front involved in the project. After the strategic planning we went into the field. We talked to people who dreamed about impact. We went to the community to build a dialogue with all stakeholders: teachers, students, family members, directors and government representatives. The integration between these “actors� in the society helped us refine the project and, more importantly, to readjust our initial ideas with the community in order to do something of value and that caused real transformation.

Integrate the beneficiaries of the projects on the agenda of the hub. Make sure they participate in workshops and mentoring. These people constantly bring a sense of reality and relevance to the projects.

words move you, but only examples create action Soraya Aparecida Delgado Nicolau director of Lacy Lenski Lopes working at the first action with Global Shapers


First municipality chosen for our Project: POA -SP Partner in this transformation journey: Lacy Lenski Lopes School Why POA? Our shaper, Eduardo Lyra, was born there and knew how much the community suffer from the neglect of public policy


POĂ When we got inside the Lacy Lenski Lopes public school, we were faced with the reality of teenagers below 18 years old that had lived so many life experiences that just the outskirts would provide. So we realized that the best way for us to start our project with them would be to listen and make an invitation: to build together. We had emptied ourselves of any knowledge we previously had and immersed on the listening exercise of those youngsters that were so worn out. Although they were tired of the issues faced living in the oustskirts, we identified points of hope in the environment they pictured to us. In order to make this hope a shared dream, we used the language they were already used to: hip hop, funk (a typical dance from the outskirts), plays, graffiti and stories of people just like them that have overcome all the obstacles and have succeeded. 32


It was inside this process that those small “sparks” of hope got together and became a “furnace” of mutual dreams: to transform the school as a better place and to provide a dignified future to all those youngsters. From this starting point we capitalized our project with the participation of hundreds of students and family members, also teachers and school directors and coordinators. As a final development stage of our hub, we were faced with the following question: we all have an intense personal and professional life, many commitments and limited time. How are we going to implement a project in a way to ensure fluidity and results? After all the pondering and brainstorming, we realized that our role was to create intelligent and meaningful connections and possible partners in order to leverage our project. That was the main point that assured us rhythm and pulse rate.

Identify partners that will be able to operationalize similar projects on a daily basis. Connect these partners to create a complete and integrated platform capable of achieving the objectives of the hub. 33


Our governance structure was refined after the experiences we acquired and developed as a group. Rather than devoting endless hours to writing a letter of governance and hierarchical structure of our hub, we dedicated our efforts primarily on creating a real group, with an identity. Only later on we created the formal structures of governance such as: deliberative decisions, setting roles between shapers and creating a formal organization. This allowed us to develop a lean governance structure, very dynamic and effective in order to serve the real aims of the hub. The WGs we had created in strategic planning actually worked only after we implemented the project.

Dream big, but make sure that as a group you share the work in subgroups. Having aligned objectives brings decentralization of activities which allows the project to flow more quickly and efficiently. 34


WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH “TURMA DO BEM”

35


Conclusion: And so we completed the first cycle of our hub. The process was intense and it is continuous. We understood that the initial phase of establishment of the hub was critical to set up the foundation as to create our values as a group and to integrate everyone. More important than just developing a new hub, the creation of an identity by means of dialogue and mutual action was a primary factor of success. With values rooted, the mission is clear. As in a great journey we know that this is not the end, but just the beginning of a learning process in order to build a lasting legacy of transformation. As the journey of the hero has many challenges, doubts, uncertainties, and learning curves still to be attained and so the story continues: How to achieve scale? How to generate indicators of impact? How to deal with 36


anxiety? How to tell this story to many others? These are some of the questions we are currently dealing with! The answers we do not know but one thing we know for sure is that we are on the way ... And the story continues... Help us build this story, because we want to go further with you all!

“perseverance is learning,

learning is to practice, practice is to repeat, repeat is to develop experience, experience is crisis, crisis is the proof, proof is strengthening, strengthening is freedom, freedom is creating out of nothing, creating out of nothing is tranforming, transforming is the path and end at the

same time!�
