What is your synonymous for December? Snow in Astana? With a frosty pattern on window? With hot tea in the warm kitchen? We believe that any answer will be correct.
December is a very special month. First of all, in December the Kazakhstani community celebrates the Independence Day of the country, and this is a special date in the calendar of every citizen. This date is important and significant for the community of Nazarbayev University – university, that was created in independent Kazakhstan and promotes the principles of academic freedom. In 2018 we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Astana, and this is another significant date for our community.
December is the traditional time to sum up a year. In a childhood the main question would be “did you behave well this year?”. In adulthood this question is still relevant. Have we been kind to others? Warm with the loved ones? Sincere and honest with yourself? Nazarbayev University was a participant and organizer of big events, important ideas and good deeds, striving for making the world a little bit better. Recently we all have learnt the names of the biggest NU change-makers for this year.
Finally, December is the pre New Year period. Time for new plans. New desires. New ideas. Start planning now, because there are only a few days left until the New Year comes. Let your December be as you wished it to be.
