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!

Solar Cookers Hard At Work

"Hey, it works! The sun is cooking our food." Schoolchildren from Windhoek are discovering first hand that solar cooking really works and that the food is delicious. For NaDEET Centre it is modus operandi every week. For each week long programme we cook every lunch and dinner on our solar cookers as part of our "we practice what we teach" philosophy.
