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

 

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 Centre Re-open!

NaDEET Centre is buzzing with life again with our first group of participants for 2021!  Fifteen learners from the Waldorf School Windhoek arrived on Monday evening after briefly getting stuck in a washed out road due to the recent heavy rains. The learners have been waiting to come to NaDEET since April 2020 when their trip was postponed due to COVID-19.  We look forward to welcoming more groups for our programmes this year.

Over 200 trees and rain!

Namibian summer is here and finally after a long drought we have had approximately 50 mm of rain so far. This makes it the perfect time to plant the Camel-thorn saplings that we have been growing throughout this past year in our tree nursery. With the help of two university students, our kitchen, garden and maintenance team have planted over 200 trees over the holidays.
