We-Day Calgary 2015
Yesterday Tuesday Oct 27 Paulo and I got the blessing of being able to attend WE day at the Calgary Saddledome.
We Day is a powerful, life-changing event that combines the energy of a live concert with the inspiration of extraordinary stories of leadership and change.
We Day brings together world-renowned speakers and award-winning performers with tens of thousands of young people to celebrate their contributions and kick-start another year of change.
We Day has evolved from a single event nearly eight years ago into a series of 14 stadium-sized events held across Canada, the United States and the UK. This past year, 200,000 students attended We Day and left inspired to create change at local and global levels.
You can’t buy a ticket to We Day. Students earn their event tickets by taking one local and one global action through We Schools, our yearlong educational program that engages and empowers young people to become compassionate leaders and active citizens. Some students collect food for homeless shelters. Others raise money to build classrooms overseas. Every young person makes their own journey to We Day, but together, they discover their power to change the world.
We Schools, our educational program, is a model for youth empowerment that challenges young people to act with intention, and lead with compassion and the conviction that together we can transform lives locally and globally.
We help young people understand the issues and how they can help, and then provide them with the tools to take action and connect them to other like-minded change-makers, creating a global community bound by compassion.
We Schools combines unique curriculum, educational resources and action campaigns; it’s a movement of students and educators who believe that some of the most powerful learning experiences happen when you make a meaningful difference in your communities and for the world.
The We Schools program challenges young people to identify the issues that spark their passion and create the change they want to see. By taking action on one local and one global issue, students develop the leadership skills to succeed academically, in the workplace and as active citizens. In short: ready to be not only the leaders of tomorrow, but also leaders today.
We Scare Hunger is a Halloween food drive to help food banks stock up on everything they need to fight hunger—the worst supervillain ever. Trick-or-treat for non-perishable goods, or use Halloween to kick off a longer school-wide food drive.
Why Take Action Against Hunger?Hunger makes life harder for millions of families across North America. For a hungry kid, one meal can mean the difference between having the energy to succeed in school and failing a test, between staying healthy and getting sick. The food you collect with We Scare Hunger fuels the hopes and dreams of families who rely on food banks every day.
Here’s How You Can Take Action
