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

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.
