The World Bank asked university students in Armenia to describe – with a single adjective – the first thought that came to their minds regarding the future of Armenia.
64 students across universities in Armenia participated, including 29 students from the regions and 35 from the capital Yerevan. 55% of respondents were female and 45% were male. We organized their responses into three “word-clouds” based on weighted percentages … and what do you think they came up with?
Education, poverty, emigration, and uncertainty featured prominently among the responses, alongside impassioned descriptions of Armenia such as bright and magnificent! Despite the challenges facing Armenia at present, the young generation believes strongly in the future of their country.
