Environmental education increases in the Hardap Region

At the end of the week, cheering, laughing and dancing were the immediate reactions among community participants after receiving their solar cookers. Including Aranos, Rietoog and Maltahohe communities, 17 groups have been at NaDEET centre this year. Relationships with schools and communities continue to grow stronger and new relationships are harboured. “I’ve always wanted to come to NaDEET and this year I got lucky as I answered the phone when NaDEET contacted us”, reports Mr. Basson from Anna Maasdorp Combined School. Anna Maasdorp along with Mariental Secondary School and Dr. Lemmer High School were among the remaining secondary schools to attend our programme. It’s the final year of NaDEET’s European Union (EU) funded project that aims to have all schools in the Hardap Region at least once. We look forward to the remaining primary schools that are coming soon.

It's Time to Grow

Learning about the environment to ensure a sustainable future should start at a tender age.  Are you an educator in Namibia and want fun but educational materials for young learners? NaDEET has just the thing. Our new It’s Time to Grow introduces children to environmental topics such as water, sun, recycling, plants and animals. The child will be engaged in stories and fun activities (contact us for copies of the booklets). Download all four topics here.

Holden the Golden Mole welcomes the winners of the Conservation Destination sweepstakes

Rob and Natasha, the winners of the Conservation Destination sweepstakes organised by the Namibian Tourism Board, visited Holden the Golden Mole at his home, NaDEET.
