“WE Day celebrates the amazing young people who have taken action at home and around the world, to create sustainable change for a better tomorrow,” said Craig Kielburger, co-founder of WE. “Standing in a stadium full of passionate youth will affirm your belief that real change can happen—and is happening every single day right here in Ontario.
WE Day is the manifestation of the WE Movement. This is a celebration of people coming together and filling stadiums around the globe to experience the greatest classroom in the world for a full day, live event. Access to the event is earned by taking action on one local and one global cause. WE Day unites world-renowned speakers and award-winning performers with thousands of young people and families to celebrate and inspire another year of incredible change. WE Day celebrates and inspires this generation’s shift from me thinking to we acting, building a better world where everyone has the power to speak out and make choices that have a positive impact.
