Dutch Wavemakers* work to create water awareness and help children

to think about water quality, water quantity and water safety. This is done via the Mobile Living Water Lab and our classroom visit program.

Dutch Wavemakers during Volvo Ocean Race in Newport

To make a difference in the future, water awareness needs to become a part of young people’s DNA. Influencers can help to connect with youth through education programs and make them water aware.

The Dutch Wavemakers can give interactive guest lectures at primary and secondary schools.While taking small steps, we help make children realize that having enough, clean and safe water is not self-evident.

During the Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Newport:

  • We can visit your school one day between 14-18 May and bring our Mobile Waterlab to teach the children. Please contact us to make an appointment!


  • From 12-19 May we are present from 11 AM till 6 PM in the Volvo Ocean Race Exploration Zone with our Mobile Waterlab. Visit us, and try your waterskills!
