Peaceful Nature Summer Programme 2009

"For a Peaceful Mind at Peace with Nature"

A big hello to all young people in Cyprus! Do you want to be part of a growing movement of the younger generations trying to make a more peaceful, united society in Cyprus, one that also respects the environment of this beautiful island that we share? Are you frustrated with the slow progress of the politicians to address these vital issues, whilst we the people stand around as helpless spectators? Here’s a chance to join a new movement for change and show that you really mean business!

Turkish Cypriot organisation KAYAD Community Centre and Greek Cypriot organisation The Environmental Studies Centre are co-organising a summer camp between the 2nd and 8th of July 2009. It will be located in Kyrenia for the first 3 days and Kritou Terra (Paphos District) for the following 3 days.

The programme will include workshops on Environmental Sustainability and Peace Education, along with environmental trips island wide. It’s also a great chance to meet other young people, and particularly to challenge the unnatural division of the island by making new friends from the other community. Together anything is possible!

The camp is open for all Cypriots between the ages of 17 and 24 (i.e. born between 1 January 1986 & 31 December 1992). Participants will be sharing accommodation with other youngsters in this age range.

This summer programme is part of a wide range of activities for young people set-up co-operatively by the member organisations of the Cyprus Network for Youth Development. It is funded by Action for Cooperation and Trust. As a result, a contribution of only €20 per person is payable by the participants. We will send you more about this when you apply.
