WE Day Atlantic.

Not so much of a review as a photo gallery post.
The energy at the Scotia Bank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia was amazing.

WE Day is a celebration of youth making a difference in their local and global communities. WE Schools is the yearlong program that nurtures compassion in young people and gives them the tools to create transformational social change. Together they offer young people the tools and the inspiration to take scocial action, empower others and transform lives, including their own.
Rooted in the belief that every young person has the power to change the world, WE Day brings a generation of young leaders together to prove that no one is along in their desire for change.
Taking the philanthropic world by storm with events in Canada, U.S. and U.K., WE Day events are attended annually by 200, 000 students from over 10’000 schools. Students can’t buy tickets to WE Day. They have to earn it through the WE School program, by participating in one loca and one global action.

Since 2007 youth involved in WE Schools have achieved amazing results:
– 62 million raised for more than 2,500 local and global organizations
– 19.9 million hours volunteered for local and global causes
– 7.6 million pounds of food collected by youth
– 10.54 million hours of silence logged by youth who took a stand for children in developing communities who are denied their rights.
