GSP Carnival 2024: The Bout

  Tushita Rawat, Yogendra Anand |     March 31, 2024

Young climate warriors from different parts of the country battled it out for the coveted title of the ultimate Climate Champions in The Bout — Green School’s Programme (GSP) annual climate quiz for schools. Organised as a signature event of the Green Schools Programme Carnival & Awards Ceremony at the India Habitat Centre on 30 January 2024, the second edition of The Bout was double the fun and double the adrenaline!

Over 35 school teams, consisting students from Grades 6 to 10, participated in the inter-school quiz competition. The event opened with a brief address by CSE's climate change experts. The quiz comprised two rounds — an elimination round and a main round. Top eight school teams cleared the elimination round and progressed to the main round. The top three teams at the end of the main round were titled this year’s Climate Champions. CSE’s Director General Sunita Narain gave away prizes to the winners during the awards ceremony on stage. The quiz also included an audience round after every set of questions, providing an opportunity for the spectators to test their climate quotient and win exciting CSE goodies.

This year, The Bout explored climate change connections with the environmental issues that we witness in our everyday lives — air pollution, energy management, food patterns, biodiversity, water and waste management. These themes align with the six sections of the GSP Audit, an environmental survey for schools, that gives students an opportunity to learn about climate change and their role in climate action through hands-on activities.

The success of the quiz was a testament to the efforts and time that the participating students and their teachers put in to preparing for it. Students’ awareness and knowledge about climate change and action only gives us hope and tells us that THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT!
