A memorandum of understanding between the University of Nicosia, the Cyprus Centre for European and International Affairs and Terra Cypria, the Cyprus environmental protection foundation was signed in June.
The agreement was signed by Philippos Pouyioutas, rector of the University of Nicosia, head of the Cyprus Centre for European and International Affairs Andreas Theophanous and Terra Cypria CEO Lefkios Sergides.
The five-year agreement provides for cooperation between the three parties in raising public awareness of environmental issues, exploring the issue of access to justice and specialisation and training on environmental law issues in national lawsuits. It also provides for the promotion of alternative forms of tourism on our island, with a view to the emergence of natural wealth, so as to increase the tourists’ winter turnout and, at the same time, to stop the irrational destruction of natural areas outside development limits. It also includes joint submission of funding programmes for environmental and joint organisation of conferences, seminars and events on issues related to the environment, education, science and open dialogue.
Against this background, it was agreed that a conference on sustainable development will be organised in early autumn with the cooperation of the three parties.
