University Students Taking Action

Over the past 2 years, five groups of university students from various environmental fields of study have taken part in our tertiary student engagement programme. After a week long sustainability training at NaDEET Centre, student groups were provided with small funds to take their ideas to implement an education and action activity. Most recently the NaDEET team joined the Ogongo Environmental Science students on their action day which included a litter clean up, solar cooking, tree planting and awareness raising activities.

It's Time to "Super-Adapt"!

Create your own super-adapted desert creature! This is one of our activities that all primary schoolchildren take part in during the NaDEET Centre programme to apply what they have learned about addressing the challenges of climate change in the desert environment. Here learners from grade 5-7 are sharing their ideas and new creations.

Integrating Environmental Learning in the Curriculum

The Namibian School Curriculum requires teachers to implement environmental learning as a cross-curricular topic in the classroom. This is easy said then done! NaDEET held a workshop with 21 Teach for ESD alumni teachers to share and generate new environmental activity ideas that are suitable to various phase levels and align to the curriculum and the Sustainable Development Goals. We are compiling these ideas into a new guide for teachers on ESD in the Curriculum.
