Dune sledding!

Dune boarding is one of the highlights for children during the programme. Once the temperatures cool down, the sand is a great surface to slide down.



One of our regular schools, Amazing Kids Academy, had the opportunity to try out our new dune board design made ourselves from a broken plastic tank.

Teach for ESD- Teachers Taking Action Nationwide

2022 is the year for our Teach for ESD participants to apply their knowledge and get practical. Throughout the year, the teachers are  to implement Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) activities at their schools. They can choose from a variety of topics from our Let's Get Practical Toolkit. For each successful activity, they will receive a badge to recognise their achievements. One of our teacher participants from the Kunene region integrated ESD into English poetry writing about Namibian trees! What a great way to celebrate our biodiversity.
