About Green Olympiad 2021- 2022 – The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI)

To raise environmental consciousness and instill sustainability linked choices amongst youth, TERI undertakes several education and awareness building initiatives. GREEN Olympiad is a step in this direction, and since 1999 this initiative reaches out to over 2000 schools with a participation of approximately 2,00,000 students annually. The Olympiad is for students of Std. 4-12 from schools in India and abroad.

 

GREEN Olympiad is a premier MCQ based examination on environment and sustainable development and draws its linkage with UN Decade of ESD and Global Action Programme (GAP). It also addresses ‘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.

 

GREEN Olympiad has a massive outreach since its inception. It is not restricted to schools in India, but participation is also seen from schools in Australia (West), Bangladesh, Bhutan, Fiji, Indonesia, Iran, Kingdom of Bahrain, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kenya, Kuwait, Mexico D.F., Nepal, Russia, Singapore, State of Qatar, Sultanate of Oman, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, United States of America, The Bahamas, Turkey, and Turkmenistan.

 

In 2021, GREEN Olympiad envisages inclusion of an additional theme of ‘Green Skills’, which are essential for an overall growth and enhancement of employability of youth. A need is felt to mainstream green skills within the learning ecosystem of children from an early age. GREEN Olympiad has created a strategic alliance with National Skills Development Corporation (NSDC) along with endorsements from UNESCO Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development, Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEF&CC), UNESCO New Delhi, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS), Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS), Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (BVB), Army Welfare Education Trust, SCERT Goa, and several other education departments.
