Young Minds from Europe Get Together to Reinvent Democracy in the Digital Era

In an effort to reconstruct the concept of democracy in the digital era, 24 young people from various European countries came together in a 2-day interactive co-laboratory which took place on the 14th -15th September. Through the Structured Democratic Dialogue Process, participants were given the opportunity to re-imagine the characteristics that an ideal system of governance should have, one that would make full use of innovative emerging technologies.

During the co-laboratory that was facilitated by the head of the non-governmental organisation «Future Worlds Center», Dr. Yiannis Laouris, and Dr. Afonso Ferreira, currently seconded as expert to the European Commission, DG INFSO, working at the Future & Emerging Technologies unit, participants invested over 500 man-hours to think, discuss, analyse, and ultimately vote in order to determine which are the most fundamental features that when implemented, could bring about the most grounding change for an ideal system of governance.

The co-laboratory made continuous use of the latest technology, as ideas were electronically recorded, compiled and processed so as to finally produce a map with all the data collected. The map that was gradually produced shows the manner in which if certain of the characteristics suggested were to be implemented, certain others could be immediately facilitated, as the key characteristics branch out and lead us to derivatives.

While ideas developed around the key question of "what are the features of an ideal future system of governance that fully utilises innovative emerging technologies?”, participants concluded that the most influential of all the characteristics were firstly the End of Political Parties as Institutions, the use of Technology for Time Management of Active Participation, the Re-definition of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and finally the Continuous Passive and Active Participation of citizens in the Political Process via an Online Platform.  

By the end of the process, participants had collectively developed a vision and a shared commitment on how to propose and promote their suggested ideas with the vision to achieve reform, each starting in their own ideal socio-politico-economic systems of governance.

The results of the co-laboratory will be widely disseminated on-line with the support of the Cyprus Community Media Center, using video clips and modern digital technologies. The aim is to circulate these amongst other youth initiatives across the world and inspire further innovative suggestions for reform.

The co-laboratory took place back-to-back with the Cyprus EU Youth Conference, which built on the priority of the Cypriot Presidency to address the topic of Youth Participation in democratic life in Europe, as one of the main priorities of the trio PL-DK-CY adopted by the Ministers' meeting at the Council of Education, Youth, Culture and Sport.

The co-laboratory was the result of a joint initiative between the Future Worlds Center and the Digital Futures Task Force. It was implemented under the patronage of the Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism, Sport, Media and Youth, Mrs Androulla Vassiliou, and was under the auspices of the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture, the Mayor of Nicosia, Mr. Constantinos Yiorkadjis, and the Youth for Exchange and Understanding.

ANAHTAR Media and FWC organise an evening reception

ANAHTAR Media, the first bicommunal media partnership in Cyprus and Future Worlds Center invite you to an evening reception at the Home for Cooperation, opposite the Ledra Palace on Thursday 5 April 2012, at 20.00.

The first partnership of its kind, created through the initiative of the Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC), and supported by ASTRA 92,8 & 105,3 , Radyo Mayis 96,0 & 101,3 hopes to build a bridge in the communication between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots who are “on the same wavelength”.
The aim of Anahtar Media is to foster a culture of peaceful coexistence between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots through the mass media.

Our ambition is to bring people with common concerns closer together, those who share a love for their country, as well as those who want to speak the ‘same language’. Anahtar Media anticipates that it will become the medium through which these hopes can be realised.
The current activities of Anahtar Media include the production of a weekly bilingual radio programme, broadcast simultaneously on the frequencies of the two radio stations, as well as the coverage of bicommunal events across the whole island through the use of live link equipment.
In addition, a team of students from the two communities are working towards the preparation of a special programme for your people utilizing modern technological tools.
The Anahtar Media partnership has received financial support from the Economic Interdependence Programme, a project run jointly by the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and the Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce, and funded by the United Nations Development Programme – Action for Cooperation and Trust in Cyprus.

Future Worlds Center collaborates with Anakyklos Perivallontiki

Dear friends

We are glad to inform you about the recent collaboration between Anakyklos Perivallontiki and the non-governmental organisation Future Worlds Center. 

Anakyklos Perivallontiki is a non-profit environmental organisation that carries out a textile-recycling program in Cyprus. Anakyklos collects used textiles such as clothes, shoes, household items (i.e. linen, bedspreads, curtains), handbags, and belts, as well as small furniture and kitchen utensils. The collected items are carefully sorted and those that can be reused are offered for free to people in need, at the charity shop of Anakyklos in old Nicosia, 14 Mouson Street. 

Anakyklos also arranges the delivery of clothes to people in need living all around Cyprus, and offers support to the community by financially assisting welfare institutions working with vulnerable groups. In addition, Anakyklos responds to crises and emergency situations abroad. For instance, Anakyklos has recently dispatched 700 kilos of children's clothes to nursery schools in Athens. 

Future Worlds Center, in an effort to further support asylum seekers and refugees which receive assistance under the organisation’s project ‘Strengthening Asylum in Cyprus’ will be offering 20Euro coupons to each member of underprivileged families - to be used at Anakyklos' shop in old Nicosia.  Future Worlds Center will be a collection point for Anakyklos. Please note that Future Worlds Center can also receive used toys in good condition.

We are hoping that you will respond generously to this call, thus helping people in need and actively contributing towards the creation of a cleaner and more sustainable environment.

Αγαπητοί φίλοι και φίλες 

Με χαρά σας ανακοινώσουμε τη πρόσφατη συνεργασία μεταξύ του μη-κυβερνητικού οργανισμού Future Worlds Center και του μη κερδοσκοπικού οργανισμού Ανάκυκλος Περιβαλλοντική. Ο Ανάκυκλος λειτουργεί τα τελευταία χρόνια ένα πρόγραμμα ανακύκλωσης ρουχισμού στην Κύπρο, μαζεύοντας μεταχειρισμένο ρουχισμό όπως παπούτσια, ρούχα, τσάντες, ζώνες, όπως επίσης και οικιακά είδη (σεντόνια, κουρτίνες κλπ.),  μικρά έπιπλα και σκεύη κουζίνας.  

Όλα τα αντικείμενα που μαζεύονται, διαλέγονται προσεκτικά, και όσα μπορούν να επαναχρησιμοποιηθούν, προσφέρονται δωρεάν σε ανθρώπους που τα έχουν ανάγκη στο φιλανθρωπικό κατάστημα του Ανάκυκλου στην παλιά Λευκωσία, στην οδό Μουσών 14. Ο Ανάκυκλος στέλνει επίσης ρουχισμό σε ανθρώπους που μένουν σε άλλες πόλεις και χωριά στην Κύπρο, και παρέχει κοινωνική υποστήριξη σε ευάλωτες ομάδες ανθρώπων μέσω της οικονομικής ενίσχυσης οργανισμών ευημερίας. Επιπλέον, ο Ανάκυκλος ανταποκρίνεται σε καταστάσεις έκτακτης ανάγκης στο εξωτερικό. Ένα πρόσφατο παράδειγμα ήταν η αποστολή 700 κιλών παιδικού ρουχισμού σε νηπιαγωγεία της Αθήνας. 

Ο οργανισμός Future Worlds Center στα πλαίσια του προγράμματος, ‘Ενδυναμώνοντας το Άσυλο στην Κύπρο’, σε μια προσπάθεια να στηρίξει τους αιτητές ασύλου και πρόσφυγες που αποτείνονται στον οργανισμό, θα προσφέρει κουπόνια του Ανάκυκλου, των 20 ευρώ σε κάθε μέλος των οικογενειών που αντιμετωπίζουν σοβαρά οικονομικά προβλήματα και συγχρόνως θα αποτελεί σημείο συλλογής για τον Ανάκυκλο. Ο Future Worlds Center θα δέχεται και μεταχειρισμένα παιχνίδια σε καλή κατάσταση. 

Ελπίζουμε ότι θα ανταποκριθείτε με γενναιοδωρία σε αυτό το κάλεσμα,  προσφέροντας έτσι στους συνανθρώπους μας που έχουν ανάγκη, καθώς ταυτόχρονα θα συνεισφέρετε στην δημιουργία ενός καθαρότερου και βιώσιμου περιβάλλοντος. 

Τα πιο πάνω ανακυκλώσιμα είδη θα συλλέγονται στο γραφείο  του Future Worlds Center στην οδό Προμηθέως 5, 5ος όροφος, στη Λευκωσία ή στους ειδικούς κάδους του Ανάκυκλου.
Για περισσότερες πληροφορίες όσον αφόρα τους δύο οργανισμούς  παρακαλώ επεσκέφθητε τις ιστοσελίδες μας στο και .

Είμαστε στην διάθεση σας για περεταίρω πληροφορίες στο 22-873820.

A step backwards on child detentions

Originally published in the Cyprus Mail on March 22, 2012.

CYPRUS has taken a step backwards when it comes to the detention of children, a prominent NGO said yesterday.

At the launch of a global campaign to end immigration detention of children, which is being launched at UN Human Rights Council, Corina Drousiotou, the Senior Legal Advisor for asylum seekers and refugees at Future Worlds Center said the Cypriot authorities have so far avoided the detention of children.

However an amendment to the law in December 2011 now permits the detention of minors as well.

“We have always been proud of the fact that Cyprus, unlike many other EU states, has not detained children; we consider this an important tribute to the human rights record of the country and evidence of our humanitarian and ethical standards,” said Drousiotou.

“But the recent amendment in the law that permits detention of minors is gravely disappointing and we are observing the possible implementation with great concern; it seems like we are taking steps backwards on a crucial issue that for us permits no discussion, children do not belong in detention under any circumstances.”

After a visit to Cyprus recently, Amnesty International raised its concerns with the Cypriot immigration authorities regarding the legality and the length of detention, and urged the government to fulfil its international obligations and respect the rights of asylum seekers and migrants. Amnesty International delegates visited three different detention facilities on the island and almost every detainee they talked to, spoke of lack of legal aid, poor conditions, and insufficient medical care, a statement from Future Worlds Center said.

“Governments should not detain children just because they are fleeing abuse, war and poverty or do not have any papers. Many of these kids are unaccompanied, have lost their parents, are already traumatized and just want safety” said Jeroen Van Hove, Campaign Coordinator of the International Detention Coalition, “Children should not be locked up. These kids and families do not pose any threat to the community.”

A handful of countries around the world, such as Belgium, Argentina and Japan use community based alternatives to immigration detention for children. Whereas Brazil and South Africa do not detain asylum applicants at all, and operate long-standing and successful alternatives to detention.

Future Worlds Center (FWC) congratulates long-time project partners Radio Astra and Radio Mayis for winning the Kutlu Adalı Press Award in recognition of their bicommunal broadcasting efforts on local radio programmes. The Kutlu Adalı Awards were set up in memory of journalist Kutlu Adalı, who was assassinated in front of his home in 1996. They are awarded every year by the Press Labourer’s Union (Basın-Sen) in recognition of media professionals working towards peace in Cyprus.

“This is a really wonderful achievement”, says Dr. Yiannis Laouris, Director of Future Worlds Center, “it is very gratifying to see the rewarding of efforts that were started years ago to utilise media as an instrumental way in providing a vehicle for all Cypriots who share a vision for the future and that of a unified Cyprus”.

Future Worlds Center, Radio Astra, Radio Pyrgos and Radio Mayis have a long history of working together to encourage positive cooperation between Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot journalists with an aim to exchange information about the two main communities in Cyprus. “It was the initiative of Future Worlds Center”, continues Laouris, “in partnership with the Management Centre of the Mediterranean, and the radio stations that launched the first and longest running bi-communal radio show called “Talk of the Island” with hosts Kyriakos Pierides and Hasan Kahvecioğlu”.

The initiative was supported by HasNa Inc., a non-profit NGO based in Washington D.C. whose mission has always been to promote cross-cultural understanding and economic empowerment in culturally divided areas of the world and to encourage individuals and communities in such areas to work together toward advancement and peaceful coexistence.

Over more than 5 years, “Talk of the Island” promoted a culture of peace and displayed balanced news reporting about all island communities about local issues and events not typically covered by the current media. The show also provided a forum for open, island-wide dialogue and direct communication about on-going non-political issues.
