In 2021, the annual International Green Business School "Eco-Talk" (School) on the basis of the Kazakh-German University (DKU) again opens  doors for young entrepreneurs from the Central Asia (CA). This School is an educational program for young entrepreneurs who want to develop  eco-business from scratch or make the existing business more environmentally friendly.

The training included business planning blocks and environmental advice, such as closed-loop economics, water technology and water quality, and renewable energy development.


This year's programme is supported by the European Union (EU) project "European Union - Central Asia: Cooperation in Water, Environment and Climate Change" (WECOOP), the Central Asian Youth Water Association (CAY4W), the International Water Secretariat of Canada (ISW) and the Swiss Development and Cooperation Agency (SDC).
