In 2022, SEAMEO BIOTROP and MSU collaborated on a series of events to promote biodiversity conservation education, essential oils therapy against COVID-19, and tropical plant identification, among other topics. The events brought together participants from universities across the Philippines.
Through these collaborative efforts, SEAMEO BIOTROP and MSU hope to increase regional visibility and promote sustainable development in Southeast Asia.
