Youth Environmental Summit 2018, Damaraland, Namibia

Engaging Namibian students in environmental education: Filmed in Damaraland, western Namibia, the film follows the weeklong training event from the perspective of the learners themselves.

The Youth Environmental Summit (YES) is organised and run by Gobabeb Research & Training Centre with support from the Ministry of Environment (MET) and Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The educational programme focused on familiarising learners from across Namibia with the scientific process through a week of intensive fieldwork that addresses specific environmental topics whilst always promoting the overall objective of establishing environmental leadership amongst young people.
