Cooperation between UNIC, the CCEIA and TERRA Cypria

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed on Friday, June 21 2019 between the University of Nicosia, the Cyprus Center for European and International Affairs and the Terra Cypria – Cyprus Conservation Foundation.

The agreement was signed by UNIC Rector Professor Philippos Pouyioutas, President of the Cyprus Center for European and International Affairs Professor Andreas Theofanous and Terra Cypria Executive Director Mr. Lefkios Sergides.

The five-year agreement provides, inter alia, for the three parties to work together to raise public awareness of environmental issues, to explore access to justice and to specialize and educate themselves in environmental law matters. It also provides for the promotion of alternative forms of tourism on our island aiming to enhance natural wealth, in order to increase the winter influx of tourists and at the same time to stop the reckless destruction of natural areas outside the boundaries of development.
