East Kazakhstan Rallies Youth to Green Cause

UST-KAMENOGORSK – To promote its City of Youth project, a multifunctional youth complex that is to become a centre of energy-saving technologies in East Kazakhstan’s Natural Landscape Preserve,  Association of Youth and Children’s Organisations has launched a broad informational campaign, Green Future for the City of Youth!

The idea for the campaign, adopted from a Dutch programme, is designed to promote creative thinking by young people through brainstorming sessions, multilevel platforms and positions.

“Young people must become the carriers of the idea of a green future and green fashion. That’s why, working on posters and slogans, the team of creators do not forget that they should be understandable and also in demand among our audience. We believe that very soon, the fruits of their work will be seen on T-shirts, caps, desktop calendars [and] key chains,” said Director of the Association Olga Bobrysheva.

Over 150 philosophical, socially acute and urgent appeals were created in just six hours in one work session. T-shirts with sayings such as “Charge the mobile manually” and others will be the dress code at the Alakol Flame Youth Festival scheduled for late July.

Throughout this year, a series of informal meetings, photo hunts and travel tours under the motto “Green Future for the City of Youth” will be held in the region.
