Bayer Young Environmental Envoy
The Bayer Young Environmental Envoy (BYEE) programme is a global environment education programme for youth jointly organised by Bayer and the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) to develop young leaders in environmental protection and to raise the level of environmental awareness among youth.
Since 2006, the programme has sent Malaysian youths to Germany to join youth from all over the world to learn about Germany’s environmental protection measures and connect with each other.
The programme is supported by local environment organisation Treat Every Environment Special (TrEES) and the Universiti Putra Malaysia.
