The COVID-19 pandemic requires adult education providers in Uzbekistan to change their educational activities. To motivate them in this challenging time, DVV International Uzbekistan announced the competition "Marathon for adult education versus COVID-19". The aim of the marathon is to support ideas of civil society organisations and actors that focus on mitigating the consequences of the pandemic. In the first stage, the best posters on the topic were selected in a poster competition. The winner of the first stage is Ismail Umarov, student at the Tashkent University of World Economy and Diplomacy.
