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!

NaDEET starts Sustainable Gardening Project

In our continuous effort to be more sustainable, we have commenced with establishing a sustainable gardening project. The project aims to produce fresh food for our Centre programmes and importantly to be a teaching garden.  It is part of a larger renovation project to modernize our operational base. The realization of this garden project was made possible by sponsorship from the Reinke family from Germany.
