Youth participation is essential in combating and preventing global environmental problems, which are becoming increasingly urgent. To achieve a healthy ecological environment in the future, our youth should have ecological knowledge and pay attention to every environmental issue. In this regard, various environmental campaigns, roundtable discussions, and actions are being held. The International Environmental Camp, organized in cooperation with the Youth Affairs Agency, the Ministry of Ecology, Environmental Protection and Climate Change, and several organizations, is also creating a space for young people to increase ecological culture, preserve nature, and not be indifferent to current environmental problems. Nature-loving youth are uniting to make the world a better place.

The eco-camp, held as part of the World Youth Festival, was a truly international event. Four participants from each of the seven countries, 33 local participants, and 6 international speakers came together to share their knowledge and passion for the environment. Last year, the camp was primarily attended by representatives from Central Asian countries. However, this year, we were thrilled to welcome participants from Hungary, Türkiye, and Azerbaijan, making the camp even more diverse and inclusive.

The camp’s main direction was divided into two international projects. One aims to create “Young Climate Champions”, a global network of volunteers and an international platform for promoting ecological culture. The project is implemented in cooperation with the Central Asian and Turkic countries. It aims to carry out campaigns among young people, develop materials related to climate change, and hold various environmental events.

As part of this year’s camp, exciting and valuable events were held in Samarkand and Tashkent on June 26-30.

In Samarkand, the participants enjoyed a rich cultural program consisting of active group lessons, masterclasses, discussions of ecological projects, and a trip to the city’s historical and exciting places. A session on youth participation in climate management and global climate action was held at the “Silk Road” International University of Tourism and Cultural Heritage.

On June 27, young people visited eco-schools in Tashkent and became acquainted with the innovative environmental projects implemented in educational institutions. Lectures by leading ecology experts were also organized at the Green University.

“International Youth Environmental Camp is being organized for the second time. The camp unites young people not only from the Asian region, but also from all over the world to protect the environment. Young people from foreign countries are paying attention to current environmental issues, expressing their solutions and suggestions at this camp. Of course, the voice and role of young people is important in nature protection. Eco-camp serves to make this voice louder”, says Anvar Temirov, Department Head at the Ministry of Ecology, Environmental Protection and Climate Change.

The camp serves to develop international cooperation in ecology as a space for practical projects and knowledge exchange.
