What is IGO?

International Greenwich Olympiad (IGO) is a Project Olympiad organised and hosted by North London Grammar School in London, United Kingdom. 

Missions and Objectives

The mission of IGO is to create a collaborative yet competitive environment in which students can present their innovative ideas to take on today’s challenges in energy, engineering, and environment, which will ensure a sustainable world for tomorrow.

The objective of IGO is:

  • to spark interest and awareness in our planet’s sustainability challenges.
  • to help young people grasp the extent of these issues.
  • to find workable solutions to these challenges.
  • to accelerate the progress toward a sustainable world by engaging youths at an early age.

IGO promotes engineering inventions and energy efficiency/management discoveries, which will nurture environmentally-friendly technology concepts in secondary education. In addition, IGO gives secondary-school students the opportunity to position themselves to be the preeminent scientists and engineers of the future. It will be these individuals who have a greater understanding of global issues and the importance of technology in achieving global sustainability who will be at the forefront of environmental research and development. Finally, IGO is a pivotal step in our educational efforts to develop an environmentally conscious global community and to inspire personal responsibility in caring for the planet and those who share it.
