University Students Taking Action

Over the past 2 years, five groups of university students from various environmental fields of study have taken part in our tertiary student engagement programme. After a week long sustainability training at NaDEET Centre, student groups were provided with small funds to take their ideas to implement an education and action activity. Most recently the NaDEET team joined the Ogongo Environmental Science students on their action day which included a litter clean up, solar cooking, tree planting and awareness raising activities.

NaDEET held a workshop with 21 Teach for ESD alumni teachers to share and generate new environmental activity ideas that are suitable to various phase levels and align to the curriculum and the Sustainable Development Goals. We are compiling these ideas into a new guide for teachers on ESD in the Curriculum.

We had a blast!

"I found the whole experience very interesting, engagin and informative- I had a blast! The importance of EE/ESD in Namibia schools is underestimated. The ideal would be for all schools to be exposed to this programme- the value it adds is just amazing!"- teacher from Ambrosius Amutenya Primary School
