About TERI Green Olympiad
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.
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.
