Abstract

Our project goal was to assess the effectiveness of environmental education efforts in developing secondary school students into critical thinkers with an intimate relationship with their environment. Through interactions with environmental educators, we determined the state of environmental education, and learned the challenges that are preventing it from being successful. We helped EduVentures, a local NGO, field-test a new initiative that will take this education to rural areas, where it is typically underemphasized. Our recommendations to EduVentures and the environmental education community as a whole, aim to help Namibia’s students become a more environmentally responsible generation as the country continues to develop.
