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 as is soon to launch the new NaDEET Urban Sustainability Centre

 

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!

Biking for NaDEET

A group of 19 students from Willy Brandt Gymnasium in Oer-Erkenschwick, Germany, are in Namibia for a bike tour to raise funds for NaDEET. Led by their school principal and NaDEET’s technical director, the group will cover a distance of over 500km in 7 days to cycle from Windhoek via the Khomas Hochland through NamibRand to reach NaDEET Centre. There they will spend a week learning about sustainability and the Namib together with one of our partner schools, WJD Cloete JSS.

We have a new solar deck

The solar deck at NaDEET Centre is one of our key components to educating our visitors about solar cooking. With a kind donation from the Speich Education Fund the old solar deck has been replaced with a beautiful and extended deck that will allow us to work effectively. The solar deck was last renovated 8 years ago and is made from invasive Prosopis wood.
