‘Locally active, globally aware’
London’s calling all dreamers, positive-thinkers, and world-changers!
On the 5th March 2015 at the SSE Arena, Wembley, the youth of today that have shown their spirit of volunteerism, will be gathering at the next UK youth empowerment event.
Fuelled by the desire for change, and the hope that the world can be a better place, We Day brings a generation together—dedicated to educating, engaging and empowering socially conscious youth to become agents of change.
We Day is the movement of our time, empowering a generation of young global citizens through an inspirational event and a year-long educational initiative called We Act, which offers curricular resources, campaigns and materials to help turn the day’s inspiration into sustained activation.
The strength of this global platform is unprecedented and the impact of the initiative continues to grow since its start at Toronto’s Ricoh Coliseum in 2007.
"I loved helping children around the world who can’t have what I have! I will never forget this experience and I will do it next year too.” - Elizabeth, Brampton, Ontario.
We Day: In the 2013/2014 school year over 160,000 youth and supporters from 4,000 schools earnt their way to We Day through their actions with We Act.
We Act: 2.3 million youth are involved across 8,000 schools in Canada, US and UK; $45 million raised for more than 1,000 local and global causes; 14.6 million hours of volunteer hours served.
World-renowned speakers and performers fill the line up for the We Day on the 5th March to inspire the continual movement, including Sporting Champion and inspirational speaker Andy Barrow, a GB wheelchair rugby athlete, triple Paralympian and three-time European gold medallist.
The Ultimate aim: to empower a generation to shift the world from "me” to "we”—from a focus on the individual to the power of community by encouraging caring and compassionate young leaders.
