Jumpstart Youth Peace Campaign celebrates its achievements

Jumpstart Youth Peace Campaign came to a closure on 15th February 2011 in the magical atmosphere of Chateau Status venue in Nicosia.

People who had participated in the campaign at different stages of its implementation gathered together and had the chance to catch up with each other and renew contacts.

Project coordinators Huseyin Kursat from Youth Center and Nicolina Markidou from Future Worlds Center thanked all participants for their support and involvement in the project and gave out certificates to everyone involved.

Special guests were the music band Babamad who performed live music by combining both electronic and traditional instruments.

Jumpstart participants formed a network of people who act as multipliers for further mobilization of young people in the reconciliation process and the strengthening of collaboration between Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot community.

The EU-funded project Jumpstart Youth Peace Campaign in Cyprus increased confidence building between the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot youth 16-30 years and created opportunities for youth to actively engage in reconciliation activities.
