Great Britain, London, 14 November /corr. Trend G.Ahmadova / "Our educational system must become "the factory of changes", which will train human capital," Emin Milli, one of the founders of AN Network, said in the forum of Azerbaijan students and young professionals in Europe (FASE) in London.

"This "human capital" must be of the highest quality, corresponding to the highest standards of the 21st century," said Milli.

The FASE Forum took place in the Chamber of Lords of Great Britain, which was attended by approximately 80 people, majority of whom were students, who get education in Azerbaijan and Europe.

Amongst the participants there were the member of the Chamber of Lords Lord Frazer, the Director of the British Council Baku office, Nicole de Lalouviere, Ambassador of Azerbaijan to Great Britain, Fakhraddin Gurbanov, Vice President of Azercell, Ali Agan, and also the representatives of several youth organizations of Azerbaijan.

"The discussions around the transformation "black gold" into "human capital" will not bring us anything if we ignore and do not utilize human capital, which already exist," Milli stated.

Other participant in the forum, representative Open Air University, Erkin Gadirli, said that in the Azerbaijani society the young people need to be re-united in order to get themselves to know as part of the necessary and important society, where they live. "I believe that we can achieve changes. No one will make this for us," he quoted to the words of the former Communist leader of China.

The coordinator of FASE in Baku, Rashad Elli drew the attention of the participants of the forum to the value of Azerbaijan. "We need people, who well understand responsibility and sacrifice themselves to attain these changes," said Elli.

The idea of establishing FASE arose in May 2006 during the first forum in Brussels, which was organized by the European Parliament.
