WE Day Manitoba 2015: The Recap

MB_Recap_Blog_header

Manitoba! What an incredible day.

We saw 16,000 young world changers step into the MTS Centre to celebrate their collective impact, and get inspired to keep making our world a better place.

With all the tragedy happening in the world, it’s more important than ever that WE come together for positive change. When we combine our dreams, passions, and efforts, we can truly make a difference.

Today, we heard from speakers like former U.S. Army soldier JR Martinez and witnessed a powerful interview between Activist Amanda Lindhout and inspiring Aboriginal youth Rinelle Harper. Of course, WE Day wouldn’t be the same without our incredible performers like BAE and Tyler Shaw.

Here are the WE Day Manitoba 2015 highlights!

Aboriginal rights and culture is such an important topic.  Wab Kinew, Waneek Horn Miller, and Tom Jackson came together for an Aboriginal panel discussion talking about the challenges they overcame to get to where they are now. Moral of the story: never give up.
