Open Day

Open Day - 50 Years

Fifty years of research and training – a record of which Gobabeb is indeed proud. Open Day, held on September 22, provided the opportunity for the Centre to present itself to its fellow Namibians – and a few international visitors as well – 300 people in all. The Open Day celebration highlighted our environment and its wonderful comparative research and training opportunities. But, it doesn’t stop there – the 50-years celebration continues. We look forward to our next 50 years and hope you will all be there to enjoy the celebration.
