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 2019, NaDEET has opened a day visitor's centre in Swakopmund, the NaDEET Urban Sustainability Centre.

Renewable energy education and equipment for local school

Learners from the Willem Borchard Primary School and community members from Okombahe in the Erongo region took part in our educational outreach programme. The programme was sponsored by Rossing Uranium and focused on renewable and efficient energy usage. With many hands-on, practical activities, the learners and community members gained a new perspective on solving their energy needs.

Appreciating our beautiful biodiverse environment!

With the end of the year fast approaching, we have been busy with teacher workshops and school groups at both NaDEET Centre and at the Urban Centre in Swakopmund. Our latest group at the Centre on NamibRand was the Grade 6 class from Private School Swakopmund this past week. With a little rain on the last day and lots of educational, fun activities, the students are inspired to act for SDG 13 ‘Climate Action’.
