WE and Siemens are making the perfect space to make the world a better place

WE Charity's Global Learning Centre in Toronto is a community space that makes doing good doable for youth and adults in Canada and internationally. With world-class technology, leadership programs and social issue workshops, the Centre is where action plans come to life and transformative change is created.

WE turned to Siemens as a building technology partner to deliver and install the latest innovations to enable major cost savings, deliver powerful capabilities and demonstrate a commitment to environmental leadership.

WE's Global Learning Centre is infused with Siemens leading-edge building automation, security, lighting and fire alarm systems. The ingenuity of the Desigo CCTM product is key to success. In short, it's a tool that connects any/all aspects of a building(s) into one simple and easy-to-use workstation, enabling centralized monitoring and control of building functions. WE is proud to be one of the first in Canada to showcase this technology and share it with the world.

Siemens is also charitably involved with WE, sponsoring initiatives like contests which challenge students to create innovative solutions to change the world.

With Siemens powerful building technology, WE Charity's Global Learning Centre is the destination for change-makers to help change the world.

"What's so wonderful about Siemens is not only does it use its technology for good, but also its time, its treasure and its heart."

Craig Kielburger, Co-founder, WE Charity
