In addition, the conference was designed to help students to understand universal moral values, tenets of the Patriot Act "Mangilik El", the strengthening of social cohesion and national unity, spiritual and moral development of the young generation, youth demonstration projects in the sphere of interethnic relations.

Gumilev Dikhan Kamzabekuly, Dean of the Faculty of International Relations of ENU of L.N. Gumilev Akbota Zholdasbekova, Head of the UNESCO Chair ENU of L.N.

On the special significance of the APK in the sphere of interethnic relations has told the head of the UNESCO Chair ENU of L.N. Gumilev G. Shalakhmetov: "What is the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan?! This is the Symphony Orchestra. In fact, classical and symphony orchestras are composed of about 50 unique instruments. If the musical instrument composed a symphony, the symphony is not complete without drums that you hear. So, in our case, this drum is a small ethnic group. Therefore, when we speak of the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan, we must hope that it would be the country's symphony orchestra! ".
On this day, students of metropolitan universities and colleges had the opportunity to speak to the various reports on the subject of patriotism and ethnic unity.
His conception of the patriotic education shared student of KazSLU Rakhimzhanov Dalen: "Patriot of the country can be any person. Not necessarily that they were Kazakh. The most important thing - these are the acts that you are doing for the good of his country. In the words of Otto von Bismarck: "He, who does not build schools, will build a prison." Translating this statement on the present: if we do not develop a sense of patriotism, unity and harmony in the hearts of the younger generation, we cannot build a state which will be able to leave a mark on the pages of history. "
Special impression was made by the performance of ENU of L.N. student Gumilev Rasulova Shahzod. Touching upon the three languages, the student highlighted the importance of mastering multiple languages to young people: "Today trilingual program paying great attention both from the government and from society. It is necessary to understand the fact: how we invest in our "today", this much we receive in the future. Trilingual’s program will allow us to be more competitive in the labor market. "
Summing up, the head of the secretariat of the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan in Astana L. Kusainova, again noting the special role of young people in strengthening national unity, called on the capital's youth to actively participate in the activities of the APK: "We are looking for allies, we are looking for friends among the youth, to develop the activities of the Assembly of people of Kazakhstan further. Learning the languages and cultures of ethnic groups, we not only develop, we raise ourselves. "
