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!

Clean-up campaign and tree planting

After a great week at NaDEET Centre, our team went to visit the schoolchildren and community in ||Khuta!hoas. For the past few years we have been hosting school groups and community members from this very remote village about 300 km south of NaDEET Centre thanks to the sponsorship of the ACS Cobham International School.

To celebrate Arbour Day we planted 30 trees at the school and at community members homes, conducted interviews with past participants and organised a clean up campaign at the school.

Small, but significant actions to get closer to a more sustainable lifestyle in Namibia's rural areas.

New "weltwaerts" Volunteers at NaDEET

Since 2008 we have been welcoming year-long volunteers from Germany through the weltwaerts programme. This official exchange between the Namibian and German governments promotes understanding of cultures and sharing of ideas. For NaDEET it has been an extremely enriching exchange for our staff and participants. We welcome our most recent volunteers Klara and Franzi.
