An Initiative of CII

The Green-I contest is an initiative of Young Indians(Yi), supported by the Indian Green Building Council and Carrier Aircon, to create the much needed awareness on environmental responsibility to the school children and future generations of India. The intent is to encourage students to think about conservation and sustainability measures that can be incorporated within their school/community and the winning school gets to showcase the implementation of ideas for the present and future generations of their school. The winning school gets a grant of Rs. 7.5 lakhs to incorporate various green measures proposed by them and to be implemented within their own campus. The pilot version of the Green-I contest was initiated in 2007 in Chennai and from 2008 onwards, it has become a flagship initiative of Young Indians.
