These vlogs have been self-produced by young people from Central Asia and edited by the ETF in the framework of the DARYA project. They were presented in Samarkand on 17 November 2022, at the Youth Event organised by the EU, YUKSALISH, ETF and UNICEF during the ceremony introducing DARYA chaired by the European Commission's Deputy Director-General for International Partnerships Marjeta Jager. The Youth Event took place during the EU-Central Asia Connectivity Conference on sustainable development.
Some 30 young people from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan gathered in Samarkand to share their vision on climate change, gender balance, education, and skills development (the topics of the vlogs). Their voice will be captured in various ways during the overall duration of DARYA project (2022–27), to provide advice to the key stakeholders involved in the project.
