All of Holland Wipt tiles

NLvoorelkaar

The seesaw season is officially open: let's seesaw, Netherlands, let's seesaw! From March 21 to October 31, all across the Netherlands, we're embarking on the NK Tegelwippen (National Tile Tipping Championship). Everyone can join in by swapping tiles for greenery in their front, back, or facade gardens. That includes you! Let's work together to make the Netherlands a greener place. By replacing tiles with grass, flowerbeds, trees, and facade gardens, we'll make our country more resilient to climate change, more hospitable to insects and animals, cooler on scorching days, and much more beautiful! Click the "I'm participating" button below to access the registration form, learn how it works, and find inspiration!

Rainbow zebra crossing to celebrate differences [Challenge]

NLvoorelkaar

Young Impact is urging everyone to take a stand for a safer school environment. Together, we're chalking up 1,000 rainbow zebra crossings across the Netherlands to demonstrate that everyone should feel free to be themselves. No one should face discrimination based on their appearance, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, or anything else. Will you join us? Here's how it works: 1. Sign up to receive more information on how to participate, along with tips & tricks. This way, we'll also know that you're taking part (and how many zebra crossings are being created). 2. Grab some chalk and get to work! 3. Encourage your friends to join in the movement.

Special impact: making a bee hotel

NLvoorelkaar

Are you aware of the distinction between honey bees and wild bees? Honey bees reside in hives tended by beekeepers and produce honey. On the other hand, wild bees inhabit natural habitats and play a crucial role in pollinating plants and flowers, aiding in the growth of vegetables, fruits, and other edible crops. Despite there being 358 species of wild bees in the Netherlands, they are facing challenges... but fortunately, there's something we can do to help! Would you like to contribute by creating a Bee Hotel or Bee Bed & Breakfast in your garden for these vital pollinators? Sign up, and we'll guide you through the process of easily constructing your own bee B&B. This challenge is also a wonderful activity to enjoy with kids!

Afternoon at the beach & making an impact

NLvoorelkaar

Maplife beach using an app and contribute to the preservation of our coastlines 🌊 In recent years, Dutch beaches have experienced increasing crowding. Unfortunately, this surge in beachgoers has left little space for nature and biodiversity along the coast. The Green Beach project aims to address this issue. You can map a section of beach using a special app. By gathering data through the app, Het Groene Strand can assess the biodiversity of the beach and work towards enhancing this unique natural habitat in the Netherlands. You're guaranteed a delightful afternoon, with the sea, sand, and a positive impact (provided the weather cooperates!). Plus, you'll learn something new. Have you ever heard of knotweed? Or spotted a hermit crab? With Het Groene Strand's new search map and app, you can discover the various plants and animals that inhabit the beach. Click 'I'm in' to get started! Tip: Share this challenge with friends, family, or colleagues for added enjoyment and doubled impact!

Donate your old sleeping bag for the homeless

NLvoorelkaar

Tens of thousands of people will sleep in the cold tonight. Donate old sleeping bags and help the homeless through the night! Sheltersuit turns it into a wind and waterproof jacket with a zip-on sleeping bag, for anyone who is forced to sleep outside. ⚡ You will do this Every sleeping bag counts when you're literally out in the cold. So clean up your attic and that of others and collect all old sleeping bags. You can donate these at all Het Goed thrift stores in your area. Note: not every sleeping bag is usable. These are good: • Synthetic thick and thin sleeping bags; • Preferably washed and should be of somewhat good looking; • The zipper may be broken; • The liner must not be broken; • Down/wool sleeping bags cannot be donated, unfortunately. You can hand in your old sleeping bags with every acceptance of goods at one of the 28 thrift stores of Het Goed. 🌙 For this you make all the difference Sheltersuit helps homeless people and refugees who are forced to sleep outside. Due to the increasing demand from aid organizations at home and abroad, no less than 16,500 sleeping bags are needed. By handing in a sleeping bag to Het Goed you make it possible that our social workshops can continue to make Sheltersuits and thus create permanent work. Will you lend a hand? You really make a difference with it and it also makes your attic happy. Thank you in advance!

Caps for guide dogs for the blind

KNGF geleidehonden

Did you know that plastic caps can be valuable? At least for us at KNGF Guide Dogs. We receive compensation for every kilogram of caps collected. So instead of throwing away the caps from soft drinks and milk cartons, why not hand them in at one of our collection points? By doing so, you're not only supporting the training of our guide dogs, but also helping to protect the environment. Together, all the caps collected have generated tens of thousands of euros. Here's how it works: Step 1: Send us a message expressing your interest in participating, and we'll provide you with all the necessary information. Step 2: Collect as many caps as possible! Step 3: Drop off the caps at a collection point near you. That's it! You've made a significant impact, benefiting both the guide dogs and the environment. It's a win-win situation! Thank you very much for your support, and good luck with your collection efforts! #challenge

It's not as daunting as it may seem - all ideas are welcome, and we'll provide you with plenty of examples or ready-made actions that you can participate in. How about the #chainreaction campaign (making bracelets), a car wash, #clippingforwarchild (haircutting - for professionals only), or hosting a charity run?
