Nicosia’s Home for Cooperation is a fitting place to celebrate International Day of Peace, a space for dialogue, action and togetherness. On September 21, Home for Cooperation will hold a series of events including workshops, a tour and music.
“At a time of unprecedented challenges,” say organisers, “specifically with the Covid-19 pandemic and climate-related issues, new forces of division, inequality and violence have emerged, not limited to but especially for those who are vulnerable, underprivileged, and marginalised.
“The theme for this year’s International Day of Peace is ‘Recovering Better for an Equitable and Sustainable World’. This resonates with humanity’s efforts to build resilience, heal traumas, and reconsider priorities. This year we are joining the global action to promote peace, equality, and sustainable living through different activities.”
The events will begin in the afternoon with a three-hour workshop titled Promoting Peace for a Sustainable World from 4.30pm to 7.30pm. And while the workshop is on, a walking tour will take place with Vijdan Şengör and Myrto Skouroupathi called Sustainable Nicosia: Current Challenges and Future Visions. The tour will leave at 5.30pm and will cover a two-hour route.
From 7.30pm onwards various DJs will take over the decks of the Home Café’s veranda, first DJ Julio and then Radio Pangea, while several drinks and food options will be available.
