WE Day returned again for another year of powerful, inspirational work and it didn’t disappoint.
WE Day is intended to inspire youth in a new generation, the day has an impact on everyone that attends. Students, teachers, families, friends of all walks of life can get something out of the day.
Each year, we join in and support as best we can because every year, you get a true sense of community and empowerment- WE Day makes you want to become an agent of change. It’s so important to teach young people this so that they can develop their minds in a way that allows them to make efforts to shift the world from “me” to “we”, from the focus on the individual to the power of community. Craig and Marc Kielburger, co-founders of the WE Movement, have done such an amazing job in bringing this to life every event.
The event is known for having a lineup of inspirational guests, celebrities and world-renowned speakers from all around the world. They join forces and come together to perform and talk to a stadium filled the energized and youthful audience
Outside of the performances, lights, and the show scheduled show, The event brings an concept that keeps each year refreshing – themes. This year focussed on the concept of “Girl Love” and being a “Girl Boss”. With conversation about body image, self-value and gender wars being a major theme in the media lately, it seemed to be the right move towards creating awareness.
