The "Kyrgyzstan-Asia 2015" Forum Program

The II Asian Students Forum “Kyrgyzstan-Asia 2015” was held in Kyrgyzstan, Cholpon-Ata, “Ak-Danis” resort from September 3 to September 6, 2015.

The Forum opening session took place in “Rukh-Ordo” cultural center in Cholpon-Ata, after which the guests were transferred to “Ak-Danis” resort turning it into a makeshift students’ campus.

After the opening session, a two-day workshop program began. The students were presenting their projects on 8 different topics concerning science, intercultural relations, social standards of education, etc. There were more than 150 people participating, more than 60 reports were delivered, the majority of which were followed by video presentations. During the final meeting the experts chose the most interesting and viable projects, which will soon be added to the Asian Universities Association’s activities program. Among the most compatible projects there were: the idea of Internet-portal, where all the youth projects would be stored; the project of ABA (Applied Behavior Analisys) therapy for the autistic children; and so on. The experts noted the program had been highly topical and all the objectives had been achieved.

One of the Forum’s highlights was a teleconference between Bishkek, Vladivostok, Rostov-on-Don and Barnaul on September 4, where the “Russian Language Ambassadors in the World” program was started. The Forums were welcomed by Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation Dmitry Livanov, who was at the Russian National Students’ Forum in Rostov-on-Don, and Vice-Prime Minister of the Government of the Russian Federation for Social Policy Olga Golodets, who was attending the Western Economic Forum in Vladivostok.

On the evening of September 5 a closing ceremony was held. The guests explored the Kyrgyz national crafts and sports events, such as tug of war, dicing and felting, followed by a concert, the drawcard of which was the Forum hymn written by ASU staff. At the end of the day a goodbye bonfire was started right on the shore of Issyk-Kul Lake.

On September 6 the delegations had left the “Ak-Danis” resort, except for the ASU delegation that spent two more days sightseeing.
