The Science Film Festival (SSF) has returned to Namibia and will this year take place in Namibia’s coastal town of Swakopmund with its partner Scientific Society Swakopmund. For the first time the SFF will also be hosted in Katima Mulilo, the far Northern region on the country in partnership with Wild Kids Academy- a private school focused on conservation. Wild Kids Academy, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Namibia through its PASCH initiative, is working on a project aimed at Human Wildlife Conflict (HWC) within the region. The films and activities based off this year’s theme UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration will take place in October as build up to the Academy’s Environmental Day. Interactive activities alongside the film screenings aims to enrich and support the communities in these areas through raising awareness and better understanding of the topic.
