The forestry department trade union welcomed the reopening of the forestry college in Prodromos for training of staff as a step in the right direction.

The branch of the Asdyk trade union said the college in the mountains is to reopen to provide training to staff, with hopes that this will become a springboard for more developments in the future.

Indeed, it hopes that the forestry college could be upgraded into a higher educational facility with the ultimate goal of being integrated with the Cyprus University of Technology (Tepak).

The college, they added, could expand its curriculum on offer to include the management of the natural environment and forest ecosystems.

Reestablishing the forestry college, which once drew students from neighbouring countries, would greatly boost the forestry department’s abilities and reinvigorate the local communities, the union said.
