Who is NaDEET?

Registered in Namibia as a non-profit trust, NaDEET is a vibrant environmental education organisation. At the core of NaDEET’s programmes is our environmental education centre located on the NamibRand Nature Reserve. Children and adult participants learn first-hand about sustainable living, biodiversity and the balance between humans and the environment. Our environmental literacy and outreach programmes complement the Centre’s activities and expand its reach nationwide. Since 2014, NaDEET has a small head office in Swakopmund. 

 

What is sustainable living?

Sustainable living enables us to:

  • balance the social, political and environmental aspects of our existence
  • improve our quality of life
  • share responsibility in managing the Earth’s resources
  • save money!

Spring is here

Spring time has arrived. Our Worm-cure Albizia is in full bloom in front of our office in the Namib Desert. NaDEET Centre said good bye to the first of another nine groups coming this trimester. The RUG team is in full action having brightened up the N. Mutschuana school yard with new picnic benches for their solar cooking area.

ESD integrated in RUG schools

Temperatures were very low in the last two weeks, ‘felt like - 4 degree to me’ says our Technical Director but it was actually -2 degrees. This could be confirmed using the recently installed weather stations at two of the RUG schools (still to be installed at the 3rd school after school holidays). The principal of Edward Frederick PS said, “We will use the data collected daily and make it part of the Mathematics lesson as the learners struggle a lot with Maths”.
These weather stations, murals and new sustainability playgrounds add Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) to the school yard. Check out our Facebook for more photos!

ESD for all- from Paris to Ondangwa

Viktoria Keding participated in the 2nd meeting of the Key Partners of the UNESCO Global Action Programme in Paris. Here the agenda is about upscaling and accelerating Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) around the world.  How can we ignite global action?

During the same week, Viktoria Endjala addressed an audience of 300 + teachers, inspectors and government officials in Namibia at the Onyaanya Circuit Teacher’s Conference. Her message was clear. To reach the Sustainable Development Goals, we need to make ESD a part of every classroom nationwide. Field trips to a place like NaDEET Centre, as a working model of sustainability, spurs responsible environmental behaviour.

Pictured with Martin Namutenya, Principal of the Okalumbu Combined School and co-organiser of the conference, Viktoria saw first-hand how one dedicated individual can spur a school, community and region to sustainability!
