Nativity Scene of Olivine Sand

From the opening on December 13 to January 6, a special sand sculpture can be admired on the Lange Voorhout in The Hague. The sculpture, made of 48,000 kg of greenSand sand, is the first worldwide. This is the first work of art built by the Sand Academy that also counteracts the greenhouse effect. During the cut-off of the nativity scene, on January 6 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, residents, entrepreneurs and visitors from The Hague can bring a bucket or bag of sand from greenSand for free. Spreading this sand over streets, gardens and parks helps to bind 48,000 kg of CO2. With the support of various sponsors, greenSand and the organization World Sand Sculpting Academy WSSa from The Hague, together with the residents and entrepreneurs of Buurschap Centrum 2005, have realized this 'green' Christmas initiative that has never been seen before in the Netherlands.
