On WOW-Day, you dedicate your efforts towards enabling children and teenagers in difficult circumstances to gain access to Waldorf education and towards improving the living and working conditions of people with disabilities.
- How about taking on a job at an interesting firm for one day?
- Helping farmers harvest potatoes?
- Organising a raffle?
There are countless ways to shape your own WOW-Day. A collection of colourful ideas can be found here.
To work for a day may be an exciting experience. How about helping the neighbours, running errands for the elderly or working in a company? Perhaps you gain a valuable insight into what profession you would like to pursue after school.
From freshly prepared specialties to homemade postcards, bracelets or notebooks - a sales booth offers many opportunities. Similarly, you could organize a flea market with all the things that you no longer need, but that may just be what someone else is looking for.
Making music as a street musician, performing a skit or a circus show - you can discover your hidden talents working for WOW-Day. How about organizing a performance off the premises of your school, for example at a retirement home?
Make use of the project days and get to know a new country every year. Engage with that country’s geography and educational situation and, for example, learn traditional Indian dances or cook a spicy curry. Then you organize a colorful fair celebrating your chosen country’s culture and, instead of an entrance fee, have your visitors donate to a Waldorf institution in need.
