I have always had a fascination for exams that go above and beyond the school-based curriculum, something that compelled me to think beyond the pages of the textbooks and into the real world. TERI Green Olympiad fits the criteria perfectly and so I decided to participate.

Our planet earth is currently dealing with a lot of environmental problems like climate change, pollution, population explosion, waste management, ozone layer depletion, and a lot more, which is affecting all the living organisms on earth. Sadly enough, many among us are unaware of the grave situation and the hazards associated with these. The nonawareness gap seems to be filled up to some extent by Green Olympiad exam as it provides an excellent platform to the students to learn and explore more about the current environmental issues. This aspect of Green Olympiad exam motivated me to participate in the exam as I got to learn a lot during its preparation.

Green Olympiad exam helps create awareness about important environmental issues and spread amongst students due to which they are able to relate their daily activities to the changes that they see and experience around them. These attributes are then transformed into environment improvement activities at students’ level. During my preparation of Green Olympiad exam, I became aware of the environmental issues and the risks involved. This helped me to evolve as a more responsible and environmentally aware person. These features of GO motivated me to participate actively in the exam.
