WE ARE THE DUTCH WAVEMAKERS

The Dutch Wavemaker program builds a community of young water & energy ambassadors with a range of partners. These ambassadors - the Dutch and international Wavemakers - are specially trained water sport talents and students who study water and energy-related topics at Dutch institutes for higher education.

They are especially capable of reaching a new generation and making them enthusiastic for topics and questions in the area of water and energy, both in the Netherlands and abroad. Surrounding their activities, new networks emerge. Businesses, governments and sports related organizations work together to elevate and share water awareness and knowledge on water management and environment.

“Dat Stichting ZSL met talloze partners juist de
wateruitdaging hebben opgepakt als thema voor
Dutch Wavemakers is een prachtig signaal.
Water verdient deze samenwerking, in het
belang van regionale en nationale branding
en reputatie, maar bovenal voor een wereld
waarin we veilig leven met water.”

“In today’s world of accelerating climate change,
water is both a threat and a most valuable resource.
We have to deal with rising sea levels and changing
precipitation patterns. This affects the way we live,
what we eat and the how we plan our future.
Knowledge and cooperation are key elements of this
agenda.”
