Kinderen voor Kinderen shows that a better world starts with you
Utrecht researchers listened to 41 years Kinderen voor Kinderen
Kinderen voor Kinderen has gone through a metamorphosis in 41 years: where children in the 1980s were mainly called upon to give to charity, today's children are given the responsibility in the songs to take good care of themselves, each other and the planet. "The kind-hearted, somewhat paternalistic singing for charity has given way to a slick can do attitude," according to researchers Feike Dietz and Laurens Ham. They analysed the entire oeuvre of Kinderen voor Kinderen (534 songs in 2020).
