About the Initiative

The Goals

The FUTURE ARMENIAN is a public initiative launched by Armenians from around the world. In these times of great uncertainty and urgent challenges, this initiative seeks to foster a dialogue that would lead to a mutual understanding and a future vision for Armenia and Armenians. Given our long history of survival and revival, we bear a collective responsibility to envision the future of our nation and the path that would successfully lead us there. Considering the urgency of our challenges, we must do so now.

As part of this collective initiative,  a list of 15 goals has been developed, with inputs from more than 300 individuals, to serve as pillars for Armenia’s development. This was initiated by a group of 11 people: Yelena Abovyan, Noubar Afeyan, Artur Alaverdyan, Richard Azarnia, Aram Bekchian, Arman Jilavian, Talar Kazanjian, Armen Mkrtchyan, Armen Orujyan, David Tavadian, Ruben Vardanyan. All interested individuals, organizations and institutions are welcome to co-sign, to participate in further discussions on WHATs and HOWs of The FUTURE ARMENIAN and to plan next steps collectively.

A series of public discussions and debates will occur in the coming months to raise awareness and provide the opportunity to engage wider audiences and supporters.

The FUTURE ARMENIAN Initiative is not affiliated with any political group or organization. The FUTURE ARMENIAN Initiative is represented by ARMENIA 2041 Charity Foundation (Armenia) and Armenia 2020, Inc. (U.S.), each entity acting independently but in cooperation with each other. It is funded by Noubar Afeyan, Artur Alaverdyan, Richard Azarnia, Aram Bekchian, David Tavadian, Ruben Vardanyan. It strives to enrich and facilitate the public discourse about the future of Armenia and Armenians.
