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.

Sustainability Training for Conservancy Leaders

Conservancy members from the Kavango- Zambezi Transfrontier Area (KAZA) in North-eastern Namibia took part in a sustainability training at NaDEET Centre. The training aimed to improve understanding of the Sustainable Development Goals and the important role that wildlife conservancies can play in the education of schoolchildren and youth. To enable members to already practice sustainability, the winning team of the Enviro Quiz received their own cloth shopping bags.

School Site Visits Bring Lots of Rewards

NaDEET staff have travelled from Rosh Pinah in the far South of Namibia to Kasika Conservancy in Zambezi Region to visit our Teach for ESD participants. Our aim was to see first hand the amazing work teachers have been doing on the ground and to provide more guidance and support where it is needed. Here is what they said:

The site visits have really encouraged us to do more for our school environments and the community at large. We thank you NaDEET so much. 

We love the site visit, it is the driving force behind doing the best and more badges!
