The WakaWaka Foundation hosts several key events throughout the year
THE SWITCH - JUNE 3th
Have you already heard of the Switch?Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) is one of the most productive dance companies in the Netherlands, if not in the world. During Switch, the NDT 1 and NDT 2 dancers take full control. For this annual event, they compile a special programme of new choreographies created by themselves. In addition to the artistic content, the dancers also manage the production, fundraising and marketing efforts. This year the dancers decided that the evening’s revenue, including ticket and merchandise sales, will be donated to the WakaWaka Foundation. Each Switch edition is unique and presents a multitude of choreographies that illustrate the dancers creativity.
Al Gore - 10 years after
Ten years ago Al Gore woke up the world with his movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’. Maurits Groen, founder of WakaWaka, saw the urgency of his plan, and brought it to the Netherlands. On the 4th of October Al Gore was in the Netherlands again. WakaWaka joined hands with Inspiration360 and wanted to stimulate social and sustainable entrepreneurship. The event aimed to invigorate the debate in the Netherlands and increase the readiness to take action.
