GONDWANA Collection Namibia and the The Namibian last week announced a strategic partnership to foster synergy in the fields of journalism, environmental awareness and community development.

The agreement establishes a robust framework for cooperation, covering a wide array of areas, with a special focus on skills development, joint projects and information exchange.

Gondwana Collection Namibia brand and marketing director Manni Goldbeck emphasised the significance of the partnership. “We are thrilled about the collaboration with The Namibian,” Goldbeck said.

“Our aim is not only to enhance the skills and expertise of journalists, but also to provide them with the tools necessary to report effectively on tourism and environmental issues.

“This partnership is not just about improving journalism, it’s also about highlighting the significance of tourism in Namibia, empowering young Namibians and keeping the public well-informed about developments in the tourism sector and environmental news.”

The Namibian’s chief operations officer, Mark Kissler, echoed Goldbeck’s sentiments, underlining the mutual benefits of the collaboration.

“This presents a fantastic opportunity for both parties,” Kissler said.

“We believe that by working together, we can achieve much more. We extend our gratitude to all involved and we’re eager to embark on this journey together. The possibilities are endless.”

Under the terms of the cooperation agreement, Gondwana Collection Namibia and The Namibian will collaborate on various initiatives, including skills development programmes through the facilitation of training sessions, joint projects via various editorial and content projects, information exchanges by way of comprehensive and accurate coverage on key issues within Namibia’s tourism and environmental sectors, and community outreach by raising awareness about environmental conservation and sustainable tourism practices among local communities.

The partnership signifies a commitment by both organisations to support journalism, promote environmental awareness and contribute to the sustainable development of Namibia’s tourism sector.
