A snow festival was successfully organized at a regional level
Additionally, a show “children in Mongolian national dresses” was organized. The show initiated by a team of Altai Sayan regional office of WWF Mongolia Programme Office has become one of attractive and participatory occasions for the people of the region within last three years. The show of this year was attended by about 70 children. Purpose of the show is to restore and preserve environmental protection and national dress traditions by calling up not to use wild animal furs and skins for the public. Participants of the event highlighted that the snow festival was not only a public gathering event but also an educational effort raising public awareness on the environmental conservation and importance of human-nature relations. This year’s event has successfully achieved its goal.
In previous practices, a problem of waste was after public gathering events. However, the problem was not seen on site after the event as a result of good organization. It shows a good example of participants’ behavioral change (e.g. to be environmentally friendly) while attending public events.
