Country Days

Country Days are special meetings when as a club we invite ambassadors to give a speech about the country focusing on the following aspects:

  • current diplomatic relationship between the country and Kazakhstan, prospectives;
  • mentality;
  • traditions;
  • education;
  • Kazakh diaspora in the country.

Usually our guest speakers perform for 8-10 minutes for a speech and 3-5 minutes for Q&A session.

Who are our audience?

We all come from different background, knowledge and experience.

We are economists and IT people, nerds and geeks, vegans and meat-lovers, marathon runners and adventurers. What unites us is that we all strive to learn, explore and share.
