This set of 11 books provides information and ideas on themes linked to the Namibian environment. The Enviroteach books draw on a number of subjects to address environmental issues specific to Namibia. The books can be used to increase awareness of and responsibility for our Namibian environment. Enviroteach was developed to be used in schools to supplement text books and comes with teaching guides. Enviroteach makes both learning and teaching fun and more relevant.
