Reflecting on the Beyond COP21 Climate Symposium: A Celebration of Youth Engagement and Environmental Stewardship

Yesterday, amidst a backdrop of hope and determination, our school community gathered for the Beyond COP21 Climate Symposium—a beacon of inspiration and action in the fight against climate change.

Conceived and facilitated by the visionary Peter Milne, Founder/Director of Target4Green, this symposium stands as a testament to the power of education and mobilization in shaping a sustainable future.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each participant who lent their voice, passion, and expertise to this transformative event. Our sincere appreciation goes to Peter Milne, whose unwavering commitment to environmental advocacy sparked the inception of the Beyond COP21 Symposium series. His visionary leadership has ignited a global movement, inspiring students and educators to become agents of change in their communities.

We are also immensely grateful to our esteemed guest speakers: Tigran Tovmysan, whose poignant insights shed light on the impact of climate change and disasters on children in Central Asia, and representatives from Narxoz University and Almaty Management University, whose contributions enriched our dialogue and deepened our understanding of sustainability.

A heartfelt thank you to the students from Tamos School, Kazakhstan International School, Tien-Shan School, Haileybury Astana, and Haileybury UK, whose active participation and thoughtful engagement infused the symposium with energy and enthusiasm. Your pledges for sustainability, creative mind-mapping exercises, and enthusiastic involvement in workshops exemplify the spirit of youth empowerment and environmental stewardship.

Special recognition goes to the dedicated teams from Narxoz University, Almaty Management University, and Haileybury Almaty for their invaluable contributions in facilitating engaging workshops and fostering meaningful discussions.

Additionally, we extend our gratitude to the local companies and organisations who participated in our Sustainability Exhibition, including Narxoz University, HelloEco, EcoSan, Enviproducts, Rocket Plastic, Urban Forum Kazakhstan, Jana Dunie Foundation, Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools, the Haileybury Almaty Physics Department and Haileybury Almaty Eco-Committee. Your commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship is commendable and serves as an inspiration to us all.

As we reflect on the success of the Beyond COP21 Climate Symposium, let us carry forward the momentum and commitment to action. Together, we can harness the power of education, advocacy, and collective action to create a more sustainable and equitable world for future generations. Let this symposium be a catalyst for ongoing collaboration and innovation as we continue our journey towards a greener, more resilient future.
