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!

"Everything was so good and now I know how to save water" NaDEET learners

The Urban Sustainability Centre is pleased to be hosting a set of workshops for the Teach for ESD programme. With three workshops already done at the centre, teachers from across the country are happy to explore sustainability using the centre and connecting to the various SDGs. Through these workshops, teachers also get to explore various places such as the Lichen fields, the Erongo Desalination Plant and the Rent-a-Drum recycling collection facility.

Teach for ESD workshops take off

We are beyond excited to finally host our first Teach for ESD workshop at NaDEET Centre this past week. A group of twelve teachers from the regions of Oshana, Khomas and Erongo started off by investigating wicked environmental problems to understand the seriousness of the environmental crisis. This is the foundation to understanding the necessity of Education for Sustainable Development.

ESD Toolkit Couriered to Teachers

At the core of the Teach for ESD programme are our 240 teachers who we cannot yet meet in the training workshop due to the Covid-19 restrictions. We have adapted the programme to enable our participants to get started by sending them some of the programme materials. The team at the Urban Centre has been busy with packing and posting materials to different parts of the country.
