It is a scenic Central Asian country of 6 million people with a rich nomadic history. Its high mountain pastures are a land of “milk and honey.” For centuries they were watered by streams of the Tian Shan mountains.

Air and water pollution, caused by rapid growth and unregulated mining, are also threatening the population’s health. But a new generation of young civic activists is fighting to insure a better future.
