Over 50,000 Kazakh residents participate in World Cleanup Day 2023

A total of 56,000 people from across Kazakhstan joined the World Cleanup Day environmental campaign. Volunteers, representatives from various public organizations, government agencies, and businesses participated in cleanup activities, collecting waste on the territory of over 10,000 hectares. The initiative contributes to the achievement of several Sustainable Development Goals, according to the organizers, including the European Union Delegation to Kazakhstan and the UN Resident Coordinator's Office. It bears noting that presently, Kazakhstan actively supports international environmental movements. Activities to promote environmental responsibility are regularly conducted, particularly, in cooperation with foreign diplomatic missions.

“We are working in many areas with Kazakhstan. On water management, on renewable energies exactly, on recycling, on technologies, that would be environmentally friendly. And the EU is introducing CBAM (Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism) and we need to work together with Kazakhstan. So, Kazakhstan is fully prepared,” said Deputy Head of the EU Delegation to Kazakhstan Maciej Adam Madalinski.
