An international exhibition "Garval" or (Origins), organized by the World Union of Spiritual Heritage of Indigenous Peoples is on display at the Mongolian National Fine Arts Gallery from June 22 to July 2, 2023. The traditional and modern art exhibition provides an opportunity to travel to the world of artists from Mongolia, Buryatia, and Tian-Shan to feel the continuity of the nomadic spirit, culture, and lifestyle. Under the auspices of UNESCO, the International Academic Conference “Nomadic Ethics and Intercultural Dialogue” held on 22-23 June 2023 in Ulaanbaatar, organized by the International Institute for the Study of Nomadic Civilizations, in collaboration with the Commission on Nomadic Peoples, the National University of Mongolia, the Mongolian Anthropological Association, University of Winnipeg, and University of Oxford. The very nature of ethics and morality has long been at the center of debates among social scientists and practitioners, ranging from discussions of virtue ethics to the “ethical turn.” Following the discussion of nomadic ethics, the conference intended first to explore the ethics of so-called nomads, and second, to examine how the ethics of nomadic peoples contribute to intercultural dialogue. Some 80 academic scholars and researchers from over 20 countries participated in the conference.
