EERace, a teacher-training course

Since 1998, we have trained about 800 in-service teachers in EE! We work very closely with the State Education Department, especially with the Sandakan Branch of the department. Our other main partners are the Sabah Wildlife Department, Environment Protection Department, HUTAN and many others in the private sector and local communities.

80% outdoor course!

Our course, called the EERace, features 80 % outdoor activities, participant-centred learning, group effort and more than 18 interesting environment-related assignments. Interestingly, when registering for an EERace, all participants do not have any idea of what they are about to learn or where they are going! The recent EERaces brought participants to 6 districts within the Heart of Borneo.

Our EERace is conducted twice a year, the first is for secondary school teachers and the second is for primary school teachers. This is an "exclusive" course, that is, one joins by invitation ONLY!!

For teachers who are interested to be involved in this course, please contact us!

Our EE programmes for students

eeprogrammeThe RDC is one of the most popular environmental education centre in Sabah, Malaysia. From 2007 to 2012 alone, about 15,800 students from both local and foreign schools have participated in our EE programmes!

Our EE programmes for school visits are customised to suit student groups of all ages--from pre-schoolers to undergraduates! If you visit the RDC on a weekend, you'll most probably see us conducting a programme with a group of students.

If you are a teacher and is interested in organising a school visit to the RDC, please contact us! We are always willing to help. Fill in form here.


Charges for EE Programmes

RM3 per student

Our EE programs are on a "first come, first served" basis. Weekends are the most popular times for school visits, so book early!
