Guess where a royal dad-to-be, a Big Five, big-hearted supermodel and one-fifth of One Direction will be on March 6? At WE Day UK! WE Day is taking over the SSE Arena, Wembley for an unparalleled day of impact and inspiration London won’t soon forget.
WE Day is like The Oscar’s for youth who are passionate about making a difference in their communities and around the world. It’s the manifestation of WE—a movement that believes when we come together we can make the world a better place. It’s a powerful, life-changing experience featuring A-list celebrities, inspiring speakers and world leaders, mixed with inspiring stories of change from real people.
WE was founded in 1995 by then-12-year-old Craig Kielburger after he read a newspaper story about Iqbal Masih, a former slave who was murdered after speaking out against the horrors of child labour. The tale struck a nerve, and Craig knew he had to do something to help free other children embroiled in child labour. Along with his older brother, Marc Kielburger, he started WE Charity.
More than 20 years later, WE Charity has expanded beyond the issue of child labour to include a sustainable model of international development, called WE Villages, that works to alleviate the root causes of poverty in nine countries around the world. Through a service-learning program called WE Schools, youth in North America and the UK are empowered to be change-makers themselves. The only way to get to a WE Day event is by taking action on one local and one global issue through WE Schools—you can’t buy a ticket.
No matter the cause they care about, on March 6 passionate youth from across the UK will be treated to speeches and performances by famous brits and North American stars! Craig Kielburger and Marc Kielburger will also be on hand to share some wise words and thank the crowd for taking action to create a better world.
Last year’s star-studded lineup included actor Lily Collins, philanthropist Holly Branson, The Vamps’ Connor Ball and Tristan Evans, Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York and Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York and singer and social media star Sophia Grace!
To get you pumped for March 6, here are five amazing guests who will be gracing the WE Day stage!
