Students from a number of universities met at Eurasian National University on December 7 to support G-Global, President Nursultan Nazarbayev's initiative to increase the number of countries that set global economic policy.

The Eurasian Economic Club of Scientists Association, which has spearheaded the G-Global effort since the president announced it in late 2011, invited the students to the organizing event at Eurasian National University.

Serik Nugerbekov, a member of Kazakhstan's Senate who is co-chair of the Coordinating Council of the Eurasian Economic Club of Scientists Association, offered students his support as they spread the word that the world needs a fairer international economic system.

President Nazarbayev contends that a handful of wealthy countries have dominated the setting of international economic policy for far too long - to the detriment of other countries.  He was referring to the Group of Eight and Group of 20 nations.

His G-Global Initiative calls for spreading international economic decision-making among dozens of countries. He wants developing countries in particular to help set global policy.

The G-Global website, http://www.group-global.org/?lang=en, promotes dialogue about global economic affairs. It also offers business people around the world information about investing in Kazakhstan.

Murat Karimsakov, chairman of the Coordinating Council of the Eurasian Economic Club of Scientists Association, told the students who gathered at Eurasian National University that they will be a sparkplug of the G-Global movement.

"We understand that young people have great intellectual capacity," he said. If Kazakhstan's leaders and the broader society give youth the support they need, they will be able to achieve their goals, he said.

As part of the G-Global youth-organizing event, a number of Eurasian National University professors and students issued an open letter to youth around the world inviting them to join the G-Global movement.

Kazakhstan's young people want to work with youth elsewhere to address some of the problems that divide the world, the letter said.

"Young people, as the most progressive and ambitious group of society," can play an important role in instituting change, said Ulan Baldahov, chairman of Eurasian National University's Center for Youth Policy. "Our future is in our hands, and we must be aware of our responsibility," he said.

Eurasian National University students offered to set up the headquarters of the G-Global youth movement at their institution - an idea which university President Erlan Syzdykov quickly endorsed.
