365 Trees Project is Underway

In celebration of the UN's International Year of Forests, NaDEET is continuing its Less Impact More Education (LIME) Green initiative by planting 365 trees this year. What makes this project special? The trees are being planted in people’s homes. We want to improve neighbourhoods on a house by house basis. We have already planted 103 trees throughout southern Namibia -- Just 262 more trees to go!
NaDEET’s L.I.M.E. Green initiative seeks to leave less impact on our environment and more impact on the minds and lifestyles of Namibians and NaDEET staff for a sustainable future.

NaDEET Outreach Tour 2011

NaDEET staff at Guibeb Primary School in MarientalOn the road! NaDEET is reaching out to all schools and communities in our local area, the Hardap region. With a self-contained solar and wind energy trailer, NaDEET staff is giving hands-on alternative energy
demonstrations for children, teachers and community members. The goal of the outreach trip is to visit all schools in the Hardap Region that have not yet come to NaDEET to extend a special invitation to
them to visit NaDEET Centre. The outreach started with a short trip to Mariental for two days where NaDEET staff visited three schools and the Ministry of Education Regional office. The second trip will
cover 20 more schools and numerous communities. This tour is the first activity in a three year project funded by the European Union that will enable disadvantaged schools and communities to participate in our programmes.

New release of the "Bush Telegraph": Rethinking waste through pollution solutions

Learners making recycled firebricksRethinking waste through pollution solutions explores waste management and its importance in solving environmental problems to support the sustainable development of Namibia. The issue deals with reducing, reusing and recycling waste in the hopes of defeating the two largest causes of environmental problems-apathy and ignorance. The issue features exciting and easy-to-understand explanations of the recycling process, how to make recycled firebricks to use as an alternative energy source and teaches readers how to build their own compost piles. As usual, there are plenty of fun activities and challenging quizzes for our readers.
