As part of the Tugan Zher program, a number of events are held in all regions of the country. An unusual project designed for teenagers has been successfully implemented in Pavlodar. Schoolchildren take boat trips on the Irtysh River to study the local flora and fauna as well as the regional history. The trips last from morning till evening. Well-known scientists, local historians and journalists teach teenagers to better know about their homeland. With the onset of cold weather, the ships stop but authors of the idea intend to resume fascinating river excursions in spring.
MIRAS KABLAN, 9TH GRADER:
- Recently, I have moved from Moscow. It turned out that everything is interesting here. Before, I hadn’t known about the history of the entire city.
MAKSIM KOCHETKOV, SENIOR LECTURER, TORAIGYROV PEDAGOGICAL STATE UNIVERSITY:
- We always try to develop regional studies and increase children’s interest in the region. The Tugan Zher program allowed us to do this in interesting and active ways. For example, we have an opportunity to teach children about their land by showing them.
Kazakh students in China showed their support to Nursultan Nazarbayev's idea on Modernization of Public Consciousness. The students organized the Tugan zher flash mob at the Beijing National Stadium.
ISLAM YESENBAI, CHAIRPERSON, KAZAKH STUDENT ASSOCIATION IN CHINA:
- These events show the love of Kazakh students overseas to their native land. The events also aim to strengthen our relationships and traditions. It is very important that young people support each other.
