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.

Global Goals at NaDEET!

Acacia Primary schoolchildren at NaDEET this week said, "We learned so much!". In this photo they are posing next to our tippy taps (the run-off water goes to a Camel-thorn Tree). The children are completing an activity about the UN Global Goals to record how they have taken action to live a more sustainable lifestyle. In the background are other components of the NaDEET Centre experience including the weather station, waterless toilets and a solar hot water heater.

23 students from the University of Namibia Southern Campus in Keetmanshoop feel it is important to focus on developing sustainable infrastructure with a focus on renewable energy to help Namibia achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Their week-long programme at NaDEET Centre was an eye-opener that gave new insight about teaching and implementing sustainability in the classroom and the region.

Teach for ESD Regional Workshops

Towards the end of the 1st school term, our Teach for ESD participating teachers gathered together for a regional workshop. It was an excellent opportunity to share experiences, learn additional topics and support teachers to reflect on their approach to Education for Sustainable Development. Teachers from all 14 regions met at 5 different venues spanning from NaDEET Centre in the south to Katima Mulilo in the Northeast.
