We Day is a one-of-a-kind event featuring inspirational and motivational speeches and performances by leading activists, speakers and entertainers. It is an annual celebration of the power of young people to change the world. It’s also the official kick-off to youth-led world-changing actions.
Students are encouraged to take action throughout 2009-2010 through Free The Children’s campaigns to raise awareness and funds for local and international initiatives. Donations will build schools and provide clean water and alternative income streams for some of the most impoverished people in the world.

On September 29th, leaders and speakers including Jason Mraz, Jane Goodall, Mia Farrow and his holiness the Dalai Lama joined 16 000 youth at GM place to support social change and compasion around the world. Free the Children co-founder Craig Keilburger has become one of my inspirational heroes. He is a great public speaker and motivator.
