BEEP Environmental Workshops

Beyond Expectation Environmental Project (BEEP) currently runs daily interactive environmental workshops in 8 different schools. The aim is to educate pupils from different schools on environmental-related topics. The aim is to increase pupils’ knowledge on different subjects such as natural science, biodiversity, need of conservation, and others which are linked to environmental education.

Another aim is to assist teachers from these schools who teach subjects related to biodiversity, natural science, and environment at large with practical school-based projects related to environmental education in the respective schools.
