The WakaWaka Foundation hosts several key events throughout the year

the switch


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.
