It is symbolic that this conference is held at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, a leading research and education centre in our country recognized as a global hub of the United Nations Academic Impact program.
The 21st century gave rise to numerous challenges to economy, environment, geopolitics, natural resources and energy. The interdependence of political, financial and economic systems resulted in the implications of local problems and actions of any country regardless of its size for the global security Deep qualitative changes in the very paradigm of world development are needed to overcome these challenges.
Against this backdrop the Kazakhstan’s G-Global initiative is undoubtedly crucial. We have established a unique communication platform that generates new ideas and solutions. This project has been successfully implemented both at the regional and international levels. It has powerful intellectual potential of talented young people and representatives of the public and business sectors.
As a platform for international discussions G-Global has been promoting innovative ways of efficient management and fostering harmonious and dynamic balance between people, resources and the environment. Our goal is to refine all major activities of humankind and to change the mentality of people.
I am confident that the conference will contribute to the global efforts to develop new paradigm of sustainable human development.
