This month we shine the spotlight on project “emPOWER: Empowering the Youth of Famagusta – Shaping Our Common Future” funded under the Active Citizens Fund programme in Cyprus and implemented by ‘Peace and Friendship’ Athletic and Cultural Youth Club, Mağusa Gençlik Birliği Association and Famagusta Avenue Garage.
The project focuses on the empowerment of young people in the Famagusta region through means such as active participation in volunteerism and civil society, human rights education, sustainability of civil organisations and enhanced intercommunal communication and collaboration. Read more about the purpose and goals of the project here.
Since its launch in September the project implemented open-discussions and workshops on topics such as participatory democracy and soft skills for a post-covid world, engaging youth from both sides of the divide in Cyprus. Keep track of project news here.
