FAQs

What is the Natural Capital Olympiad?
The Natural Capital Olympiad is a pan-India Olympiad brought to you by Saevus to create awareness and knowledge about nature and environment. Participation in this Olympiad not only brings in many awards and prizes for the students, schools, teachers and principals but also recognizes the school as a Green institution. 

Why should I take this test/What is special about the Olympiad?
The Natural Capital Olympiad gives you the opportunity to become aware of nature and the environment. It is a test that doesn't really encourage rote learning as it emphasizes on the logical application of a knowledge base. 

So there are two reasons why it is different from the other Olympiads. Usually most Olympiads are only for competitive exams so it is only the toppers who participate. But here as we are talking of nature and the world we live in, anyone who loves nature can participate. Secondly this one is not about marks and ranks alone. It is about lessons to be learnt in life…it is something that will make every child in your school a responsible citizen tomorrow.
