The student conference on "Turkic World" was held at Kyrgyz-Turkish Manas University on the occasion of the 100th Anniversary of the Republic of Turkey.
The conference was held at KTMU Kasım Tınıstanov Conference Hall on May 18, 2023. Rector Prof. Dr. Alpaslan Ceylan said that there are two important elements that make up the future of a nation. The first is to know its own language and culture, and the second is to know its history.
Prof. Dr. Alpaslan Ceylan touched upon history's importance. Also he said, “In the notes of Mehmed Arif Bey, the author of the book titled “What Happened to Us in the 93 Ottoman-Russian War”, the following sentences are included; I didn't think history was necessary. I thought that history was just stories, but when I participated in the 93 war, I understood why people needed history. That`s why statesmen, administrators and we should know history well. People must have historical awareness and knowledge. You, the future historians, have a significant role to play. You need to research the most accurate historical information and convey it to people. In this context, you must be talented, well-equipped and self-confident young people. Be the leading historian of the future. You will write the future. You will write the history of our nation and the Turkic World."
After the opening speeches, 12 participants participated in two separate sessions. The processes, historical development, culture and economic development processes, political structures, influential personalities and the effects of these personalities on the society of the Turkic World states were discussed.
At the end of the program, certificates were presented to the participants.
