We are sure that it was also unpleasant for you to see the news about the barbaric attitude to nature, in particular the Sunday incident at Kok-Zhailau (a mass open-air film screening in Almaty). This event is a clear example of the need for educational activities, especially among young people. This event was not only illegal and unethical, but also had a detrimental impact on the environment.
We hold many different large and medium-sized events in every country in Central Asia at all times of the year. Our activities as a youth organization are aimed not only at improving the knowledge and skills of young people, but also at educating and forming a culture of respect for nature, the importance of environmental education and the need for sustainable development.
In spring and autumn, we organize cultural events for different segments of society – eco-picnics, river days, water days, lectures and seminars attended by hundreds of young people. The holiday season will come very soon: Hiking in the mountains, going to nature for barbecue, trips to national parks and nature reserves.
We encourage you to take care of the environment – don't
· build fires;
· turn on loud music;
· break trees or bushes;
· dig up the ground or pull up the grass;
· turn on bright lights or car headlights;
· leave behind garbage (even organic).
Your actions can scare the birds and animals that live in this place.
Yes, trips to nature are a great way to spend time and have an active healthy holiday, but please do not forget about your responsibility as an individual to society and to nature. Creating a culture of behavior is not only a personal responsibility, but also a collective one. So clean up after yourself and make sure others clean up too.
