Green Olympiad Sample Papers 2012, Green Olympiad Questions papers for 2012, 2011 and 2010 are extremely useful for the Green Olympiad 2012. The exam is to be conducted in the month of August.
The GREEN Olympiad is designed in an innovative manner to test the knowledge of students in the field of environment and in turn create awareness about issues touching their daily lives. This annual initiative reaches out to regions across India having limited access to such educational programmes. The purpose is to improve and expand environment education both at the national and international level. It aspires to develop human resources, institutional infrastructure and a diverse mixture of locale-specific, regional and national action plans to sensitize schools on the need for environmental protection.
The GREEN Olympiad is open to students from classes 8, 9, and 10 from recognized education boards and educational trusts from across India and some schools abroad. Over the years, besides India, the programme has reached out to schools in the Middle East, Nepal, Singapore, Russia and Kenya. With a modest beginning of 10 cities in 1999, this programme had reached out to 375 cities in 2007. Today, students from more than 600 cities in India and abroad participate in the Olympiad. In 2011, more than 2 35000 students had taken this examination.
The GREEN Olympiad addresses the need for networking amongst the schools to establish a ‘Platform’ and helps the students to connect and understand what is happening in the world around them. Schools in the semi-urban and rural areas often have limited access to information on environment. To address this problem, TERI partners with regional education boards and trusts which have schools in remote areas.
