Aurecon young Civil Engineer selected for Davos

Young Civil Engineer, Shamiso Kumbirai, at global engineering and infrastructure advisory company Aurecon, has been chosen to represent Southern African youth at the World Economic Forum (WEF), which is taking place in Davos on 23 – 26 January 2018. Kumbirai is a member of the World Economic Forum Global Shapers, a network of inspiring young people under 30 working to address local, regional and global challenges.



“We would like to congratulate Shamiso for being selected to be part of the Global Shapers community. Developing future-ready leaders starts with investing in and empowering the people who are solving some of Africa’s most complex problems,” says Ferdi Nell, Aurecon Managing Director, Africa.

Each year, the WEF selects 50 Shapers from across the world to represent the voice of the youth. Kumbirai was selected for her work in bulk water supply and hydropower engineering in Africa, as well as her involvement with WomEng, an award-winning initiative to support young women in engineering.

The Global Shapers community is spread over 378 city-based hubs in 155 countries and their goal is to drive dialogue, action and change.
