Global Goals at NaDEET!

Acacia Primary schoolchildren at NaDEET this week said, "We learned so much!". In this photo they are posing next to our tippy taps (the run-off water goes to a Camel-thorn Tree). The children are completing an activity about the UN Global Goals to record how they have taken action to live a more sustainable lifestyle. In the background are other components of the NaDEET Centre experience including the weather station, waterless toilets and a solar hot water heater.

Teach for ESD Regional Workshops

Towards the end of the 1st school term, our Teach for ESD participating teachers gathered together for a regional workshop. It was an excellent opportunity to share experiences, learn additional topics and support teachers to reflect on their approach to Education for Sustainable Development. Teachers from all 14 regions met at 5 different venues spanning from NaDEET Centre in the south to Katima Mulilo in the Northeast.

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.

March has been an eventful and productive month for NaDEET, with our Urban Centre School programme hosting an unbelievable 8 school groups at the Urban Centre in Swakopmund. NaDEET Centre on NamibRand has also started picking up the pace with two groups having taken part. We are grateful for the schools that have participated in our programmes, and we are open for more bookings for future dates.

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.
