This article describes on-going research in the design of sustainable systems to support transfer of indigenous knowledge between rural elders and city living youths in Namibia. Specifically we here address the importance of co-design and highlight some of our findings through experiences gathered from in-situ dialogues with village elders on designing NUI’s.
