Environment Education and Awareness Area at TERI sensitizes students and youth on major environmental issues through informal mode of engagements. A leading example of this engagement is GREEN Olympiad - an annual environment examination conducted by TERI since 1999. GREEN Olympiad is designed in an innovative manner so as to test the knowledge level of students in the field of environment, and in turn create awareness about key environment issues touching their daily lives. This annual initiative has proven to be an excellent tool to sensitize students on environmental problems, reaching out to geographical regions across the country.

GREEN Olympiad inspires academic fraternity to incorporate various aspects of 'environment and sustainable development' within confines of academic campuses. In its 20th year of existence, we are launching GO4Youth which is aimed to reach out to students at undergraduate and post graduate level. An overarching aim is to evaluate knowledge quotient of youth about environment and sustainability and orient them towards environment consciousness.

GREEN Olympiad falls within the scope of 'Goal 4 - Target 7' (SDG 4.7) which states, ‘ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all'. GO4Youth will be an online examination. It will comprise of multiple choice questions that test students' knowledge, application and analytical skills; and simultaneously spreads awareness on various topics related to environment. Participants will be awarded with certificates. Top performing students will get a chance for internship at TERI or other partner institutions. However, the final decision will be made at the sole discretion of TERI.
