Green Olympiad 2021
This event is organized by my wonderful friend and colleague, Livleen Kahlon at TERI. I hope that it will be of interest to some of our secondary school team. Best wishes, Donna Goodman
The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) invites you to participate in the prestigious environment examination, ‘GREEN Olympiad’ – India’s premier annual school initiative being organized since 1999. The examination serves a dual purpose of testing the environment quotient of students and enhancing their understanding about issues related to sustainable development. ‘GREEN Olympiad’ is open for students of Std. 4 to 12, and is divided into 4 levels (Std. 4-5; Std. 6-8; Std. 9-10; and Std. 11-12).
Due to an uncertainty imposed by COVID 19, students can appear online for GREEN Olympiad. The importance of Olympiads is articulated in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, as a medium to minimize rote learning and encourage a holistic development around 21st-century skill. GREEN Olympiad is the premier Olympiad on the environment in India and draws its linkages to 'Goal 4 - Target 7' (SDG 4.7). This year, GREEN Olympiad is being launched with a new feature - the examination will cover two issues of topical interest: (i) Environment and Sustainable Development (ii) Green Skills + Environment and Sustainable Development.
All participants will receive certificates based on their performance. The last date for registration is 30 September 2021. Registration can be made ‘Online’ through the project website and the link: https://www.teriin.org/olympiad/registration/.
