This weekend, the city of Moynak in Karakalpakstan again plunged into the "element of music and goodness", where the traditional electronic music festival "Stihiya -2021" was held.
"The death of the Aral Sea remains the most acute environmental problem in the entire Central Asian region. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev in his speech at the 72nd UN General Assembly, called on the world community to pay attention to this natural disaster and show consolidation of efforts." – was said in the message of the organizers of the festival.
Initially, this festival was conceived as a musical event, but in a few years, "Stihiya" fest has developed into a multi-faceted flow of music, culture, art and science. A striking example of this was the scientific forum "Element N+", which discussed the impact of human activity on our present and future, ecology and conservation of natural resources for the future generation.
This year's festival featured well-known music producer Nina Kravitz, as well as other music producers, musicians and DJs from Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkey and Kyrgyzstan. The forum was also attended by scientists, environmentalists and specialists from Uzbekistan and Russia.
Within the framework of "Stihiya-2021", a social action "6 billion trees" was held, more than 5,000 trees were planted. Project objective: gradual planting of drought-resistant shrubs and fruit trees in the city of Moynak and in the lower reaches of the Aral Sea to improve the ecological situation in the region.
The project "6 billion trees" was initiated by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Faculty of Acoustics with the support of the Russian Corporation "Rosatom", the State Committee for Ecology and Environmental Protection, the State Forestry Committee and the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Karakalpakstan.
Today, "Stihiya" is not just music and communication, it is also drawing public attention to the environment. And the goal of each of the festival's projects is to reflect on their actions in relation to nature, and to bring a piece of good to preserve our unique nature.
