Youths Inspired and Empowered at first-ever WE Day Community: Nottingham
Last week, WE Day, an inspiring youth empowerment event and celebration of social good, held the first-ever WE Day Community: Nottingham, at the Royal Concert Hall.
The event brought together over 2,000 young people and teachers from across Nottinghamshire who earned their way by taking action on local and global causes that they are passionate about.
WE Day connects these young people to their communities and the rest of the world by helping them share their stories of social action. From raising awareness about homelessness to fighting climate change, the event celebrated their year of creating a lasting difference in their communities.
This inspiring celebration for social good featured renowned speakers, innovative thought leaders and dynamic performers including Joe Dempsie, Emilio Estevez, George Gretton, WE Charity co-founders Craig Kielburger and Marc Kielburger, Martin Luther King III, Vicky McClure, Bella Ramsey, Margaret Trudeau, Isabelle Weall and more.
Speakers and performers at WE Day Community: Nottingham energised the crowd through a day filled with powerful educational speeches, inspirational moments and performances.
To support more young people to attend WE Day and celebrate their collective achievements in social action, Boots UK helped bring WE Day to Nottingham, making this the first time the event was held in the UK outside of London. Held during Boots UK’s 170th year, bringing WE Day to Nottingham symbolises Boots UK’s on-going commitment to the community of Nottingham.
