For the past several decades, the internet has been revolutionizing our lives and a new world order is in the making. Globalization is threatening the sovereignty of small nations and the identity of their peoples. The accelerated pace of assimilation of new generations among diasporan communities has become a grave concern. How will the Armenian nation rise to this challenge?
The severity of the situation has motivated us, Armenian youth of different paths, to join forces in search of solutions. The Armenian Identity Movement (AIM) was established to address this challenge. Its vision is to develop a conscious, modern and inclusive Armenian Identity among the Armenian Diaspora. Its mission is to act as a platform to create programs that explore and reinvigorate the Armenian identity. It seeks to design programs that help build a modern, open and positive sense of not only “being” Armenian, but also “feeling” Armenian – feeling that is ingrained with the knowledge of an “informed and conscious identity”.
