Our vision is a society where every young person, irrespective of background, gender or circumstances, has the chance to develop their talents and reach their potential with a view to living a healthy, self-determined life. To that end, our sports and practical education projects not only bolster young participants’ mental and physical health but also help cultivate greater awareness of themselves, their environment and fellow human beings.

wirmachenwelle e.V. contributes to these Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are international goals of the United Nations for a better and more sustainable future.

About us

The work of wirmachenwelle e.V. (we make waves) revolves around young people with all their dreams and potential. Being physically active outdoors in nature not only enhances their sense of wellbeing but also offers lasting benefits in terms of developing personal resources and social skills.

Siblings Sebastian and Johanna Steudtner founded wirmachenwelle e.V. in 2017 to pursue a cause they are passionate about – giving kids and teens who face major challenges an opportunity to enjoy the beneficial effects of surfing.

wirmachenwelle e.V. is currently rolling out several sports and experiential education projects that combine sports, the outdoors and instruction as well as therapy. These are run both in urban areas and in nature. We partner with youth welfare institutions and schools in problem neighborhoods or those where more social support is needed. On top of that, a program open to anyone and everyone is being offered in the Berlin borough of Lichtenberg starting in the fall of 2021.
