WE Day is the greatest classroom in the world. This stadium-sized event—held in 17 cities across the United States, Canada, the UK and the Caribbean—brings together world-renowned speakers and award-winning performers with millions of young people and families to celebrate and inspire another year of incredible change.
You can’t buy a ticket to WE Day—you earn it through service. Through the yearlong WE Schools programme, schools and groups take on one local and one global action and report back on their results to earn their way to WE Day. And thanks to our generous sponsors, the event itself is free to attend.
Interested in helping to create one of the greatest world-changing events on the planet? Sign up to be part of the day that kick-starts local and global change.
