What is TH!NK Namibia?
TH!NK Namibia is a national information campaign which was initially launched in 2015 and is looking at various key topics in different phases. The TH!NK Namibia Campaign serves the interested public and targeted individuals with information and educational content related to aspects of environmental awareness and climate change, water conservation, climate-smart agriculture, sustainable forest management, renewable energies and sustainable development. By using a variety of information material such as fact sheets, posters/ infographics, videos and podcasts as well as various communication platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, the Campaign reaches out to its target groups.
Phase 1 of the Think Namibia Campaign was launched under the Environmental Awareness and Climate Change Project. The first phase of the campaign looked at the issues of environmental awareness and climate change from a broader angle. The second phase of the campaign, in turn, took a closer look at Namibia’s energy challenges, promoting and raising awareness on renewable energies and resource efficiency. Phase 2 was launched on 8 November 2017 under the Promoting Renewable Energies in Namibia (PREN) Project . As part of the second phase, the name of the Campaign was changed to TH!NK NAMIBIA. As of 2020, the TH!NK Namibia Campaign is in its third phase, looking at climate-smart agriculture in Namibia. Phase 3 is run under the Aquaponics Project .
