WE (formerly Free The Children) is a youth-empowerment organization that helps more young people, in more communities, to make a meaningful impact on global issues such as homelessness, sustainability and water security.

The WE Global Learning Centre has two main purposes: to give students around the world the tools and support they need to create positive social change, and to support educators in delivering service-based curricula through the We Schools program.

WE approached Applied Electronics to provide consultation, design and integration services in converting the Toronto heritage building into a world-renowned innovative learning space for children located anywhere from across the globe.

Applied Electronics designed, supplied and integrated audio visual and broadcast technologies into the lobby, the multi-purpose theatre with a dedicated AV control centre, a live broadcast production centre, boardrooms, meeting rooms, seminar rooms, and other unique collaboration spaces throughout the building.
