Background: The history of WOW-Day

Since 1994, WOW-Day encourages people around the world to support each other. The idea first came up in a meeting of the European Council for Steiner Waldorf (ECSWE): Astrid Bjönness, former Representative of Norway, talked about "Operasjon Dagswerk", a single day campaign, during which Norwegian high school students raised money for charity. Inspired by the Norwegian campaign the WOW-Day campaign developed for Waldorf Schools. As a cooperation partner in Germany, the German Federation of Waldorf schools supports WOW-Day since 2009. Initially the fundraising campaign took place on a pre-specified date. Over the years, the period has been extended, allowing each institution to organise their own fundraising day on a suitable date between 29 September and 29 November.
