Through educator-led programmes and self-guided activities, NaDEET aims to challenge assumptions about the impact of lifestyle choices and to offer ideas to finding suitable everyday solutions to environmental problems. Work has started work on their latest sustainable education initiative, an urban model house in Swakopmund.
Inside the house visitors will explore issues affecting the average Namibian household in practicing a sustainable lifestyle. In the open plan kitchen/ living room, visitors will discover how this “family” is practicing energy and water efficiency, using alternative resources and managing the household waste. In addition, topics such as nutrition, transport and gardening will be explored by conducting activities and experiments.
Intended visitors: The general public, schoolchildren and tourists
Programmes: Self-guided tour with activity guides, guided tours, school programmes
Potential reach: 8,000 schoolchildren; 5,000 tourist and adult visitors per annum
First classes are expected in early 2018.
