Sustainable development

“Green offices are a great way to integrate education for development across universities, impact on teaching and learning, the physical campus and student life.”

Miriam Tereik

The Green Office is a development platform that empowers students and staff to embed development principles into curriculum, research, operations, communities and management.

Benefits of a green office:

• Empowering students and staff to launch more projects.
• Strengthening collaboration between initiatives.
• Implementing sustainability in our university.



The Green Office is the central hub where fresh minds and hands come together to support the sustainable development of KazNMU.

Our vision for a sustainable university!
