The Think Namibia Environmental Awareness Campaign is national campaign that was launched in 2015 and serves youth, educators, media, decision-makers and entrepreneurs both in urban and rural areas with information and educational content related to environmental awareness and climate change, renewable energy, water conservation, climate-smart agriculture and sustainable development.

Phase 1 of the Think Namibia Campaign was launch under the Environmental Awareness and Climate Change Project. The first Phase of the Campaign had a broad focus on variety of environmental awareness and climate change topics which among others included climate change, renewable energy, water conservation, climate-smart agriculture and sustainable development. Phase 2 of the Campaign was launched on 8 November 2017 under the Promoting Renewable Energies in Namibia (PREN) Project. As part of the launch of the second phase of the campaign, the name of the Campaign was changed to TH!NK NAMIBIA and a new campaign logo was unveiled. Phase 2 of the TH!NK NAMIBIA Campaign will build on the firm foundation laid during Phase 1, however it will have a focus on renewable energies and energy and resource efficiency. Moreover, the second phase of the campaign also has a component of outreach to rural communities.

Digital media has made exchange of information easy, hence the TH!NK NAMIBIA Campaign has seized this opportunity. Therefore, the Campaign has an active presence on key digital media platforms. Moreover, innovative outreach initiatives have been crafted to enable effective outreach to the rural masses and thereby ensure that “No Namibian feels left out” as per the call of the President of Namibia Dr Hage Geingob.

Objective

The objective of the TH!NK NAMIBIA Environmental Awareness Campaign is to contribute to promoting and raising awareness on renewable energies and resource efficiency in Namibia within the context of climate change mitigation and adaptation.
