Khyakimlik and public organizations of the city of Ashgabat came up with an initiative to hold an environmental campaign dedicated to World Health Day. Within its framework, from 4 to 11 April this year, from 8.00 to 18.00, the streets of the capital will be open only for city buses, taxis, as well as other public transport serving the population.
Concern for environmental well-being is an integral part of the socially oriented policy of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, which is headed by the health and happy life of the people.
As a result of the successful implementation of a large-scale environmental program, the microclimate has significantly improved in all regions of Turkmenistan. Every year, a nationwide campaign for planting tree seedlings is held throughout the country. A “green” belt has already formed around the capital, protecting it from the negative effects of car exhaust gases, dusty winds, improving air quality, and contributing to the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity.
Such wonderful traditions as regular bike rides have been established, which bring together thousands of Turkmen citizens, including motorists, who at this time refuse to use their vehicles, which have a very beneficial effect on the environmental situation.
Bike rides are one of the most popular socially significant events held in many countries in support of various social, sports and environmental projects and ideas, and in Turkmenistan they unite residents of cities and villages, older and younger generations.
Everyone is invited to the tracks and highways of the Motherland - lovers of a healthy lifestyle. At the same time, an important component of this action is the environmental aspect.
Cycling marathons held in Turkmenistan help to improve the health of the population and popularize cycling. After all, such events motivate their participants to engage in their favorite sports, carry a positive emotional charge, combining entertainment and promotional functions.Environmental actions are a worthy continuation of the good traditions of caring for nature in the era of the Renaissance of the new era of a powerful state.
