One of the expected results is an increase in the level of legal culture and legal awareness of citizens, the desire to overcome zero tolerance for cases of non-compliance with laws and manifestations of corruption, to continue work on the effective application of legal norms aimed at ensuring the safety of citizens and strengthening unitary and secular society in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Gulnara Ryskepova, ex-judge of the Supreme Court, will talk about her experience in enforcing laws in defense of family, women and children.

Aislou Bekmusa, UNICEF Coordinator for Children’s Rights, will provide information on the situation of violence against children in the world and Kazakhstan, which UNICEF is doing in Kazakhstan to address the issue of violence against children.

Aziza Shuzheeva will talk about the purpose for which the Alliance of Women’s Forces was created, and what work they do in countering domestic violence.

The speech of Yerlan Balymov as the head of the faculty of the Aktobe Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs will be dedicated to the opening of the first Center for the training of inspectors for the protection of women’s rights in Kazakhstan, where training takes place taking into account international experience.

The topic of Shavkat Sabirov’s message is also very relevant due to the fact that most people know little about cyberbullying – the type of violence through the Internet, which affects primarily our children and young people, and even adults.

For reference:

Today, people around the world are surrounded by the fruits of the industrial revolution and global economic growth. At the same time, our civilization faces serious economic, social and environmental challenges. Human activities have led to disasters and problems: climate change, lack of fresh water, degradation of ecosystems, armed conflicts, unemployment, the rapid spread of infectious diseases, forced labor and much more.

Humanity at the end of the last millennium chose a new development paradigm – sustainable development. Today, it is the only diplomatically coherent approach to development based on global cooperation among all countries.

In September 2015, 193 United Nations Member States adopted a new development agenda to continue progress towards sustainable development – “Transforming Our World: A Sustainable Development Agenda 2030”

The Agenda entered into force on 1 January 2016 and includes 17 the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets to be achieved before 31 December 2030 except for those with earlier dates.

SDGs cannot be regarded as imposed or promoted by the UN. The SDGs are not an internal UN agenda, but a programme for all countries and stakeholders.

SDGs include all elements of human well-being on the planet now and in the future. That is why their realization is important for each of us and everyone should be aware of these Goals.

The international community believes that success in implementing the Goals depends primarily on the involvement of civil society. More than 4 years after Agenda 2030, public awareness of SDGs remains low.
