The World League "Mind Free of Drugs" began to gather the material for this exhibit in November 3, 2010.

The event will be held in Kyrgyzstan (Bishkek and Osh) in the first quarter of 2013 at leading universities and secondary educational institutions.
The decision to present the exhibition in Kyrgyzstan has been made by the organizers on the basis of the fact that the country is located in the heart of Central Asia, at the intersection of the ancient trade routes between Europe and Asia. But besides the commercial exchange, a drug trafficking of the "Golden Crescent" states - Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran, passes through the territory of Kyrgyzstan.
Later the exhibition “Maya Planet: world against drug addiction" will take place in other countries of the region - Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Further, it will continue its way to major cities in Europe, Middle East, Australia, the U.S., Latin America, and Southeast Asia.
