SCIENCE TREKS FOR SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES
- SCIENCE TREKS FOR SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES
INTEGRATION environment & energy (INT) pledges to work in the area of scientific awareness and environmental education. As part of this INT joined hand with Swiss Family Trekking, Tours and Expeditions (P.) Ltd. to develop an interesting programme of science and awareness treks, expeditions and field trips.
The programme targets professionals from other countries to experience scientific treks in unique environments, organizations for the outsourcing of field trips for their workshops and conferences and finally the promotion of field based education for schools and universities from Nepal, the region and beyond.
