The FUTURE ARMENIAN is a public Initiative launched by Armenians and friends of Armenia to create a common understanding around the sustainable development goals for the Motherland and Diaspora. More than 110,000 Signatories from 108 countries have already joined the Initiative.
With the participation of reputable experts and general public, The FUTURE ARMENIAN has formulated 15 pan-Armenian goals (see: 15 goals • The Future Armenian). By participating in the upcoming discussions and conventions of The FUTURE ARMENIAN Initiative, every Armenian by birth and by choice can become a part of collectively planning next steps towards the implementation of these goals.
On March 10-12, 2023, the first Convention of the Future Armenian will be held in Yerevan. The three out of fifteen goals of the FUTURE ARMENIAN Initiative will be discussed during the Convention:
The Convention would provide an excellent opportunity for every adult Armenian who is ready to contribute to shaping the future of the Motherland and Diaspora to make his/her thoughts and opinions heard, discuss scenarios developed by experts and draw up packages of recommendations on achieving these goals.
Registration for the Convention of the Future Armenia is open to everyone․ It would be the first “citizens assembly” in Armenia, and the first-worldwide experience of “citizens assembly” with the participation of Diaspora.
