Earth Day is an international event celebrated by more than a billion people worldwide. Earth Day The Hague started when a group of friends discovered that International Earth Day was not well known in The Netherlands. In 2015, we developed an Earth Day festival with speakers, politicians, a market and outdoor projects. In 2016, we collaborated with Duurzaam Den Haag to develop a larger event with an art-from-scrap competition among three different elementary schools, a full market, presentations and workshops including a keynote presentation by renowned eco-activist Maurits Groen. You can read about past programs by scrolling through the blog posts from previous years.
