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!

"Everything was so good and now I know how to save water" NaDEET learners

Passionate teachers share their ESD stories

NaDEET Centre hosted a group of 18 teachers from the Hardap Region to share ideas, experiences and strategies for implementing "Education for Sustainable Development" in schools. Teachers also were introduced to the new UN Sustainable Development Goals using fun, interactive activities such as "taxi talk games", role plays and the new Global Goals hit single from African artists. Sponsored by our EU-funded action, this programme gave our "RUG for Sustainability" teachers and opportunity to showcase their progress within the region.

Weather & Climate

With impacts of climate change visible, understanding weather is crucial. Our recently updated weather station and new Climate Change Path at NaDEET Centre help teach children the importance of recording basic weather information.  You too can also see actual weather reports online thanks to our new digital weather station.  For this and more stories, please enjoy reading our latest newsletter.

Our Environment. Our Future. Our Responsibility.

‘Heal the world, plant a tree’;  this was very important message delivered by NaDEET on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture Water and Forestry during National Tree Planting Day (9 October 2015), which was celebrated in RUG communities in late October. 90 trees were planted in 6 schools to celebrate under the theme Our Environment. Our Future. Our Responsibility.
