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 as is soon to launch the new 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!

Helping Nature to Thrive

With the COVID-19 regulations restricting most activities from taking place, NaDEET is using this opportunity to increase the number of trees and shrubs by planting indigenous trees on the NamibRand Nature Reserve. Starting at NaDEET Base, this tree planting project uses the cocoon tree planting aid plus added shields to enhance plant survival around the reserve. Read more in our latest newsletter.

Growing More Greens

While the Centre remains closed, we are extending our garden to increase production for groups once they can return. The team at NaDEET is almost done putting up the extension structures for us to grow more greens.

Looking into the future

As we embark on other activities at NaDEET Centre, the team is having strength to carry on the operations with hope that we are going to have groups again soon. Having already had six groups at the centre this year before the lockdown, we work to improve programmes for when they return.
