What is already there?
The festival was first held in 2015 in Ulytau, Karaganda oblast and was dedicated to the 550th anniversary of the Kazakh statehood. In 2016 – in South Kazakhstan oblast under the auspices of the 25th anniversary of Independence of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and in 2017 - in Pavlodar oblast as part of the implementation of the Tugan Zher program and Spiritual Shrines of Kazakhstan project.
In 2018, the festival was dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the capital of Kazakhstan and was held in Aktobe oblast. About 120 people took part in it – students of 14 Kazakhstani universities, as well as universities of Russia (Orenburg) and Uzbekistan (Nukus) and young people - members of QazaqGeography.
A prerequisite for participation is to have tents, sleeping bags and other tourist items with you, because participants travel around the region for several days, live in tent camps. And this is the beauty of the festival – when young people from one region can explore the cultural, historical and geographical features of another one.
In addition, coworking sessions, seminars, lectures by scientists about the nature of the region are held within the framework of the festival.
Participants are paid for travel, cover the costs of accommodation and meals.
The project has been suspended since 2019.
