Yes Bank and Saevus Natural Capital Olympiad

Fast depleting natural resources have made us conscious of the true value of Nature. It is very easy for you to understand the value of a Tree for the cost of its wood, but only a Natural Capitalist can understand how valuable that same Tree is for oxygen, shelter and habitat. This ‘Tree’ is our natural capital.
With this in mind, Saevus and YES BANK, supported by the Central Board of Secondary Education, is proud to present the Natural Capital Olympiad. This Olympiad is about science, geography, general knowledge, mental ability and a whole lot of green fun and challenge.
