The Paphos village of Kissonerga has been awarded as the “Green community of Cyprus” in two separate categories for 2023 by the Cyprus Centre for Environmental Research and Education (Cycere).

Specifically, the village won the “Culture and Environment” category for its coastal path, and the “Sustainable Tourism” category for its Nature study trail network project.

The village will officially receive its award in a ceremony attended by President Nikos Christodoulides and will be presented with a green flag.

Kissonerga mukhtar Giorgos Stylianou said his village and its residents were “honoured” to receive the award and said it had been won “as the result of coordinated efforts and policies implemented by the village council in recent years.”
