A Peace and Dialogue Project for Nearly

a Quarter Century

We Feel Responsible for the Future


Civil society is an indispensable precondition for the establishment of democracy. Civil society is such a society that people come together voluntarily when a problem comes out regardless of what kind of it. They gather and try to find a solution by sharing their sources, information and energy.


   Alexis de Tocqueville

“Democracy in America”

As the Marmara Group Foundation, we continue to work for peace, stability and welfare equality at the national and international levels as a member of the civil society.

Where technology is replacing politics and artificial intelligence is dragging us into mechanization in today’s world, we as the Marmara Group Foundation aim to raise awareness and promote volunteering.

The Marmara Group Foundation, which organizes events to facilitate a common view, common interest, common sensibility and common demand in non-governmental areas, places great importance on the continuity of democracy and the free market economy.

Transparency and accountability remain very important to us as we focus our efforts on dealing with social problems.

Labeling the culture of civil society as counter to the public sphere would be a mistake. The notion of civil thought, which has its own distinctive rubrics, is an independent form of meaning and expression.

As the Marmara Group Foundation, we have been promoting cultural and social togetherness towards peace for 33 years.

The Marmara Group Foundation, together with its international and highly-reputable partners in 17 countries, has been organizing the Eurasian Economy Summit as a peace and dialogue project for 22 years.

22nd Eurasian Economic Summit
“The Development of Technology
and the Future of Humanity”

“Responsibility for the Future”


“The Advancement of Technology and the Future Awaiting Humanity”


What is the Role of Artificial Intelligence in the Realms of Energy and Economy?


Could Religion have an impact on the advancement of technology?


We assume that those who are born today will live in the 22nd century. With the responsibility to understand whether artificial intelligence will pose a threat or a solution, we will discuss the advancement of technology in the areas of energy, economy and social life, and the future that awaits humanity at the 22nd Eurasian Economic Summit under the main theme ‘Responsibility for the Future’.


We will seek answers to how religion might impact the future at the 22nd Eurasian Economic Summit.


As the concept of globalization is shifting ownership in today’s world, we will elaborate the “One Belt-One Road” roadmap on a global scale.


Furthermore, observing that the populist culture is reaching its peak, we will tackle the dimensions of the populist debates and how they could shape our future.

Is Artificial Intelligence a Threat or a Solution?

The world is in an unstable course!


Where and how will artificial intelligence get, as it can both imitate the analogue calendar in which the human mind works within, but operate different from the digital computer?


Given the current limitations of artificial intelligence in terms of energy efficiency, measurability and packaging intensity, where will its voice and shape recognition features end up?


We will be addressing these issues at the 22nd Eurasian Economy Summit


While the future of potable water in Africa is at stake, how to divvy up the natural resources in Mars is negotiated in another part of the world, and we, at my country, are discussing the production of our national automobile.


We will be elaborating on the developments that have occurred as a result of technological advancements and globalization, and will discuss the spread of terrorism which has stemmed from these developments.


We are going to evaluate the advent of artificial intelligence which has emerged with the rapid advancement in technology.


What impact will religion have on the advancement of technology and the rising concern from terrorism?


We will be discussing all of these material subjects, along with the possible impact of religion, from a moral standpoint.

Water and Energy

Water is life. Even though our lifecycle depends on water, only 2.5% of all waters in the world are fresh water. Not only is 70% of this resource is in glaciers, in soil, in the atmosphere and in underground sources, but is also not usable. As the world population is rapidly growing while water reserves remain unchanged, the demand for water, and therefore the strategic importance of water, is increasing.


The global average annual per capita water consumption is 800 m3. 1.4 billion People, which constitutes 20% of the global population, does not have access to potable water, and 2.3 billion people have limited access.


Additionally, by 2050 the number of countries with major fresh water problems will increase to 54, and the global population which will be forced to live under these circumstances will reach 3.76 billion people. In other words, by 2050, 40% of the global population, which is expected to reach 9.4 billion, will be experiencing water shortages.


Apart from the importance of water as an element of life, it is equally significant for the economic wellbeing of countries. Water means energy and production, and in this sense, it is the source of development, welfare, stability and quality of life. We will be elaborating on the current and future concerns regarding water at the 22nd Eurasian Economy Summit.

The New Dimensions of Globalization
We will be discussing the extent of how the new global actors of China and India could shape the established geopolitical practices at the 22nd Eurasian Economy Summit, a globally-recognized event which brings together various international schools of thought.
What will be of the relationship between the European Single Market, which has expanded to the global commercial space, and the increasing market share of India and China, who have a combined population of 3 billion people?
Will globalization continue to be a mega-trend which encompasses and impacts everything it gets a hold on?
What will be the impact of governments, non-governmental actors, private companies and NGO’s in the future of globalization?
How will the future tackle the spreading notion of insecurity?

We will be discussing the future of populism, which has emerged as a reaction to the established political thoughts.


What will be the future impact of populism, which is gaining traction not only globally but primarily in the US and Europe, and which has become a movement that has lost its connection with its core values and is projected by segments of the populations as a major political wave?


The future of energy resources and the potential direction of the economy will be opened to discussion.


Will the current economic developments, the increase in military capacities, and the politico-economic power of populous countries respond to expectations?
