On November 22, 2022, a Memorandum of Cooperation was signed between Astana International University and the Public Foundation "Center for the Promotion of Sustainable Development". The parties agreed to strengthen cooperation within the framework of the PlastNet plastic collection and recycling network, created with the support of The Coca-Cola Foundation.

On December 26, the first working meeting was held with Alena Severinenko, a representative of PlastNet, and Myrzakhmet Maldybekov, head of «ВТС Астана 2». Dean Ainur Seitkan acquainted the guests with the work carried out by the Higher School of Natural Sciences to attract the attention of teaching staff and students to the problem of environmental pollution with solid waste, to inculcate a conscious and responsible attitude to consumption.

As part of the cooperation, PlastNet donated specialized eco-boxes for collecting waste materials to the university. An agreement was also reached that the company «ВТС Астана 2» will be in charge for the collection of secondary raw materials from the territory of the university.

Thus, Astana International University will become the first university in Astana to introduce a system of separate waste collection on its territory and this is a serious contribution of the university to the sustainable development of our capital!
