Did you know… that the roots of Wavemakers are in the Netherlands? In 2017, founder Tilly Stroo successfully launched the ‘Dutch Wavemakers’; a group of youth with a passion for water and energy inspiring the next generation to contribute solving the global water crisis. But where water doesn’t stop at the border, neither did we and in 2022 we successfully launched the Wavemakers United Foundation.
