We Day brings young people together to celebrate the actions that they are taking in their local and global communities and to inspire another year of change by sharing the passion of world leaders and entertainers. We Day is tied to the year-long We Act program, which offers educational resources, campaigns and support materials to help turn the event’s inspiration into sustained action. Through We Act, students commit to taking one local and one global action to better the world, earning their way to We Day. This October, the Rogers Arena will be filled with 20,000 educators and youth for We Day Vancouver.
Taking the stage this year is a cast of returning favourites and new faces, including Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Hedley, Katie Couric, Joe Jonas, Shawn Mendes, Orlando Bloom, Big Sean, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, Kweku Mandela and Col. Chris Hadfield. Along with others, this star-studded lineup will join international activists and We Day co-founders, Craig and Marc Kielburger, to share their passion for change, international experiences, and energize the crowd with unforgettable performances and motivational speeches. We Day fan favourite actress and multi-platinum recording artist, Selena Gomez, will lead the crowd as the host for We Day Vancouver
