Coming back from the Sustainability Summit in Berlin one of our main goals was to spread the YouThinkGreen ‘virus’ in Namibia. A youth movement must be started all over Windhoek and Namibia and cannot be contained within our school!
Therefore we started going to other schools spreading the message.
Our first stop in May 2013 was the ‘Green Week‘ at Combretum School in Windhoek.
Headmistress, Sue Brown, and teacher, Ingo Lange, had organized a Green Week for the students of Combretum. The five day undertaking consisted of lectures and workshops about photovoltaic, biomass and wind energy. The idea behind the concept is to teach kids sustainability by raising awareness and promoting green technology.
Well done, Combretum!
May your example be followed by all the other schools in Windhoek right away!!!
For some pictures of our visit, have look at our Facebook album.
The next stop was at Namib High School in Swakopmund. There we gave a presentation in front of the students and teachers of the environmental club. Annemarie Mater, a very enthusiastic and inspiring activist had invited us to be part of the ESD seminar taking place in June 2013. Read the full report here.
In July 2013 YouThinkGreen Namibia started cooperating with MyThink Blue, an initiative of Volkwagen AG in Germany. Together we’ve started an online forum where everybody can contribute to the discussion about a sustainable transport system for our school and Windhoek. Unfortunately the forum’s language is German .-(
Anyway, if you’re capable of writing a few German sentences, here’s the link to get involved.
