We are honoured that our Director, Viktoria Keding, won the 2014 Windhoek Lager Conservation Ambassador Award. The award, which honours people who make a difference in their community, consists of a cash prize for both Viktoria and a charity of her choice (oh, it will be hard to figure out what she will choose!)
Thank you to all who supported and casted votes for Viktoria and congratulations to the Ambassadors in the six other categories (pictured above).
NaDEET teamed up with the Swakopmund Municipality to provide a workshop for representatives (aged 12-18) from 9 different Swakopmund area schools. The workshop was a part of the Municipality’s ongoing “Education for Sustainable Development” campaign made possible through its partnership with The City of Malmö, Sweden. The 90 minute lesson started off with an introduction to energy and the “ability to do work.” Learners were prompted to think about the different types of energy sources available to them, and how they relate to “Sustainable Energy 4 ALL,” the UN campaign to improve access, and support renewable and efficient technologies in developing countries. During the Exploring Light Bulbs experiment, a crowd favourite, learners compared the heat output of an incandescent, LED, and compact fluorescent bulb to measure efficiency.

‘So I have been considering different ways to try and share my experiences at NaDEET with you. To tell you the truth, putting pen to paper about this project simply uplifts my soul an excites me to the extent that I no longer know what to write so I will describe a few activities which I was able to participate in to you and hopefully through my descriptions, images and film you can understand the magic one experiences at NaDEET’.
