Goals:: Nomads help preserve the planet with their low-impact lifestyle, which uses few of the earth's resources. With their strong connection to and respect for the earth, their lives can teach us the art of sustainability.
In the past 50 years, though, nomads in Mongolia have decreased from nearly 100% of its population to 38% today. There are many forces causing this-health and education opportunities not equal to those in the city, a harsh lifestyle, lack of infrastructure, and climate change, as well as globalization. At this rate, there could be very few nomads in Mongolia's future.
