The conference was attended by students of Vienna International School (Austria) and KAZGUU University. At the conference, the students discussed the main issues of drug abuse among young people, focusing on the regional, cultural, and legal aspects of Austria and Kazakhstan; and the prospects of international youth cooperation on topical issues of youth development.

It is aimed at establishing a platform for students’ dialogue in order to exchange ideas; join in with the world culture, education, and thinking; expand their cultural and academic outlook; and build up their communication networks.
