Schoolchildren from Martti Ahtisaari PS from Windhoek learned the importance of water saving at the Centre recently. They explored how the water cycle works through experiments such as trying to capture water through transpiration. With the on-going severe drought and overconsumption, Windhoek is facing a looming water shortage. These learners, sponsored by the Rotary Club Windhoek, will now hopefully spread the word of how to save water at home and at school. Watch the video here!
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.
With impacts of climate change visible, understanding weather is crucial.
