«The essence and values ​​of the Great Steppe Civilization»

The international scientifically-practical conference “The essence and values ​​of the Great Steppe Civilization” was held at M. Auezov South Kazakhstan State University.

The conference was organized for the purpose of propaganda of the program article of the Head of State N. Nazarbayev “Seven Facets of the Great Steppe” and realization of the tasks mentioned in it.

Moderator of the conference, the rector of the university D. Kozhamzharova: “Space is the measure of everything and time is of the entire event. The history of the nation begins when the horizons of time and space come together. This is not just a good aphorism” - the article of the Head of the State, which began with a great impression of our minds, attracted the attention of not only Kazakhstan, but also Central Asian and Turkic-speaking communities to deeper understanding of the essence and values ​​of the Great Steppe Civilization. As people say “Misfortune never comes alone” the memory of the descendants from continuing calamities had faded away from the facts about their ancestors and had forgotten some of the great men. Thanks to the sacred Independence, we have to regain our lost values ​​and regain our historical identity. Today's conference will focus on the importance of the ancient Turkestan, Otyrar cities, the value of the Great Silk Road, the image of great names, thinkers and poets, and people who governed”.
