GREEN Olympiad

GREEN Olympiad is a leading school-based initiative of TERI. The journey started in 1999 as India’s premier environment quiz for school students. It has since then incorporated within itself several stages of initiatives at TERI in the field of sustainability transformation to match the aspirations of the academic community to establish as an Environment Education brand. Reaching out to nearly 2000 schools annually in India and abroad, this Olympiad is designed for students of Std. 4–12. The overall objective of this initiative is to sensitize and build capacity of students on environment, sustainability, and green skills.

The importance of organizing Olympiads is articulated in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, as a medium to minimize rote learning and instead encourage holistic development and enhance 21st century skills. GREEN Olympiad is the first Olympiad on environment studies in India and draws its linkages towards '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.

On World Sustainable Development Summit 2023, the GREEN Olympiad Global Winners in each level were virtually felicitated on 24th February 2023.
