The first National Teachers training on Environmental Education and Local Curriculum was conducted by WCN Education Program NPP at Tilingatar Higher Secondary School, Dhapasi, Kathmandu from November 29 – December 01, 2015 in coordination with Education Training Center (ETC), Kathmandu. Fifty eight teachers from five districts, Rasuwa, Nuwakot, Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur participated in the training. This is the first training in Nepal based on Interactive Environmental Education (IEE). The package for this national training has been developed with the technical input provided by the Technical Support Group formed with representatives from NCED, DOE, CDC, Danish Forestry Extension, DFE, WCN and experienced Environment Science Teachers from government and private schools. The training package included sessions on Interactive Environmental Education (IEE), step by step guides on how to create Eco-teachers groups and networks, computer literacy on how to use the online portal and different educational videos. 
Since 2002 WCN through its Education Program Nepal Prakriti Pathshala (NPP) has been focusing on building capacity of Environment Teachers in order to make Environmental Education more Interactive in Nepal.
