Our ears are still ringing from crowds of cheering change-makers! The energy of the WE Day Vancouver crowd was shining even brighter than the sun outside the Rogers Arena!
To celebrate the big impacts they’ve helped effect in their local communities and around the world, students from across British Colombia ventured to Vancity for a day of inspiring speeches and performances.
Covering topics including cyberbullying, the environment and mental health, the day’s speakers touched on topics close to the hearts of youth in the audience. Featuring exciting appearances by Katherine McNamara and Anna Cathcart (one of the show’s hosts), on top of spectacular performances by Serena Ryder, WE Day Vancouver was all about unforgettable moments, uplifting stories and celebrating B.C.’s most empowered young social advocates.
WE Day Vancouver may have rolled up its blue carpet for the season, but the students who shared in its magic have just begun their journey of change. Wait and see, this pack of change-makers are sure to turn the inspiration from the big show into action, whether through volunteering on a ME to WE Trip, running a new WE Schools campaign or using their pocket change to #giftgood this holiday season with a ME to WE purchase. West Coast youth, you have the power to change the world!
