Prof. Dr. Rostislav Rybakov, who is the director of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences and the head of the Dialogue Eurasia Platform (DA), was interviewed at the opening reception:
Education is the main thing on which our future depends, the future of our children and grandchildren…
There are not so many teachers, great teachers, who really devote their ideas to education. So now, here the Gulen Chair, is a good gathering of very interesting scholars from all over the world; and I must say it is very well prepared and I look forward to this conference with great interest.
But the main thing for us is to contact after the conference, because we are the people who actually are responsible for this future educational system in practice. Gulen’s is a theory and is a teaching; we are those volunteers, as he called us, who will fulfill his ideas.. InshAllah (God willing).
