EduVentures was started in 2003 as an educational and data gathering initiative of the National Museum of Namibia (NMN) and the Immanuel Shifidi Secondary School in Katutura. In 2007, EduVentures registered as an NGO. Its overall objective is to sensitize Namibian school learners to topics related to the environment and sustainable development. The aim of the program is to cultivate interest among young Namibians in their national heritage (cultural and environmental) and to empower them to get actively involved in environmental issues threatening these. Ultimately, EduVentures strives to promote responsible and engaged citizen.
EduVentures actively provides environmental experiences for mainly disadvantaged Namibian youth whilst simultaneously contributing to the continued expansion of Namibian scientific knowledge and deepening the collective understanding of its natural and cultural heritage, all of which are crucial to the conservation & sustainable use of Namibia’s environment.
EduVentures envisions a greater environmental literacy amongst all expedition participants, equipping them to be leaders that actively promote and contribute to the wise and ethical management of Namibia’s natural and cultural heritage and to ensure environmental sustainability and well-being.
