NEWS invites to a presentation by Corris Kaapehi, Edu Ventures Ombombo Mobile Classroom – Environmental Education on Wheels.
The lack of appreciation for the environment and limited career opportunities for Namibian youth prompted a group of nature conservationists from the National Museum to establish a mobile classroom focusing on environmental education in the country. The EduMobile programme is a mobile environmental-awareness program tailored to meet Namibia’s specific environmental concerns such as climate change and biodiversity loss in rural areas. The mobile classroom, which will be called the “Ombombo”, meaning butterfly, will focus on educating learners from Grades 8 to 12 in rural schools on environmental issues.
All events are open for public – everyone welcome! Venue is Namibia Scientific Society, Robert Mugabe Ave 110, opposite National Theatre. Safe parking in yard – Love street entrance.
