The British Embassy in Ashgabat donated 7,000 books on climate change to Turkmen schoolchildren. Thus, the diplomatic mission of a friendly country marked the Day of Knowledge and Student Youth of Turkmenistan. Books in English and Turkmen languages handed over to the Ministry of Education of Turkmenistan will be distributed in schools and educational centers in Ashgabat.
“The UK is committed to working with all countries and joining forces with civil society, companies and people at the forefront of the fight against climate change to drive action ahead of COP26,” the UK government website said.
“The decisions we make now will directly impact our ability to protect the environment for future generations by working together to tackle climate change. We hope that this book, which has already gained international popularity, will be of interest to both young people and adults in Turkmenistan as a valuable resource on the general challenges of climate change and an educational tool that can help develop English language skills.
These beautifully illustrated books explain the history, dangers and problems of global warming, the causes and consequences of climate disruption, heat waves, floods and other extreme weather conditions in an accessible and interesting way. They illustrate the dangers that climate change poses to our environment and the solutions for the future - sustainable agriculture, new green technologies and other ways we are tackling this most pressing global challenge together,” marks a post on the “World News”.
