Changemaker Dean lives in the Netherlands. He is committed to a clean environment, healthy food and plenty of exercise. Read more about Dean. KidsRights helps Dean set up, execute and expand his project. Read more about this project below!
What’s the problem?
Dean’s company WhaSUP NL gives SUP (Stand Up Paddling) tours through Schiedam and the surrounding area. During these tours, he sees a lot of trash in the water. He wants to fight this pollution and has decided to take action!
What’s Dean’s solution?
Dean wants to teach children how to keep their environment clean and why it is important to do so. He also wants to help them lead a healthy life, with proper nutrition and plenty of exercise.
This is why he has started Kids CleanSUP, a project where he takes groups of kids (age 8-16) to clean up the waters of Schiedam and surroundings while SUPing. The children are taught the basics of SUPing and receive a course book about keeping the environment clean, proper nutrition and exercise.
The children get a free trial lesson, Dean hopes that they will like it and come back.
What’s the goal?
The goal is to keep the water clean. He also wants to give the kids a fun and active day and teach them about food, exercise, and trash.
How does Dean work?
First Dean will make a flyer to inform people about Kids CleanSUP. He will also develop the lessons. The information should be fun and interesting to the children. He will organize the trial lessons himself and keep contact with the children afterwards so that they will sign up for more lessons.
