RCE Khomas-Erongo Member Wins UNESCO-Japan Prize on ESD

The RCE Service Centre wishes to congratulate the winners of the UNESCO-Japan Prize on ESD, including the Namib Desert Environmental Education Trust (NaDEET), member of RCE Khomas-Erongo in Namibia and a fellow partner organisation in Network 5 for the GAP. The prize honours individuals, institutions, organisations or other entities for outstanding projects or programmes in the field of ESD, with three annual prizes of US $50,000 awarded.

NaDEET was selected for its project ‘NaDEET Centre on NamibRand’ which runs programmes offering hands-on immersion in ESD for schoolchildren, community groups, educators, and parents. Through experiential transformative learning, sustainable living is put into practice. Other winners of the prize include the Kalabia Foundation in Indonesia (awarded for its experiential programme ‘Environmental Education for the Heart of the Coral Triangle’) and the Let’s Do It Foundation in Estonia (awarded for its international projects ‘World Clean Up Day’ and ‘Keep it Clean’).
