GREEN Olympiad is TERI’s flagship program since 1999. The aim is to inspire school fraternity to incorporate various aspects of ‘environment and sustainable development’ within their academics. Genesis of this concept is based on the principle of ‘catching them young’. Annually the program reaches out to over 2000 schools with a participation of approximately 2,00,000 students. In 2021, the focus of the quiz was on twin issues of environment and sustainable development and green skills. The objectives were to evaluate the environment quotient of students and create awareness about green skills from an early age. This year, the quiz reached out to students in Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, India, Kuwait, Malaysia, Nepal, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, United States of America and Viet Nam.
GREEN Olympiad caters to students of Std. 4-12 from schools in India and abroad. It is a premier MCQ based examination that draws its linkage with the principles of UNESCO’s ESD for 2030 program and 'Goal 4 - Target 7' (SDG 4.7). which states, ‘ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development’ by 2030.
