[Ambassador report] Eco-friendly Mobility

by Amina Kabdyrakym | 21-11-2020 03:03 Comments 2 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



The best type of ecological way of transporting is by using a bicycle in Kazakhstan. Many cities have plenty of parks where a special road is determined for bicycle riders. Unfortunately, due to the severe winters of Kazakhstan, it is impossible to use this type of vehicle. Another type of eco-transportation is the eco-bus. The capital city of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan, uses hybrid buses. These unique buses use 30% less fuel than common buses. Moreover, they reduce the emission of carbon dioxide by 33%, nitrogen dioxide by 40%. Unfortunately, we could not see an ecological shift in cars.

Eco-clubs and eco-organizations conduct an event where they say about the importance of using public transportation. Eco-activists actively promote using a bicycle that is also important for health.

Some tourist places, such as Shymbulak uses eco-buses to promote eco-lifestyle that does not harm the environment of those places.

In 2019, the Ministry of Ecology was created. Also, the special law book Ecological Codex has been written. We hope that these recent changes will affect our eco-friendly mobility.

From my point of view, eco-cars are the perfect way of solving the global warming problem because it reduces CO2 emission. However, eco-cars are expensive, and most drivers cannot afford them. Therefore, it is not so popular among citizens.

In the future, I believe that eco-cars will be cheaper than cars that have an internal combustion engine. So, more and more people will support the eco-lifestyle of driving the zero-emission vehicle.

    Hello Amina!
    It's your SJ mentor.

    Thank you for sharing your thematic report regarding eco-transportation in Kazakhstan.
    As like severe winters of Kazakhstan I also cannot ride bicycle due to cold weather in Korea.
    It is sad to hear that there are no green shifts in personal automobiles.
    Currently Electrical vehicles are pricey so additional research should be conducted to lower the price.
    I think it is good to change from the public transportation system such as eco-bus then EV bus.
    It could give citizens positive impression about eco-friendly mobility after the experience.
    Hope things are fine with you.

    Best regards,
    SJ mentor.

    Hello Amina,
    this is your mentor WooJoo.

    Warm greetings from South Korea.
    Thank you for sharing the eco-friendly mobility of Kazakhstan.
    I am glad to hear that the infrastructure and facilities are quite well constructed, and provided to all bicycle riders.
    Here in South Korea, the roads are not very flateven, so we have difficulties in riding the bicycles in every corner.
    I am curious if you ride it frequently too.

    Keep sharing,

    Regards,
    WooJoo
