Interesting review on Cypriot cities, especially with a special focus on Famagusta and Eastern Mediterranean University through the narrative of our respectful rector Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam (3:30’). And final remarks from me (3:53’) on the sustainable future of the Cyprus: Famagusta Ecocity Project. Thanks to EL PAIS!
We may not be close to find a permenant solution to the Cyprus problem yet. However we need to learn to cooperate together in order to provide a sustainable future to our children. No matter what, we will keep on sharing our common vision for an integrated, peaceful and ecological city and a better life for all! Thanks to María Hervás from the Spanish leading newspaper EL PAÍS for making us part of their review on Cyprus.
It has never been easy to put 40 years of division into words… It is even harder to picture the socio-psychological, environmental and economic problems occurred by this division. We would like to thank Valerie Gauriat from Euronews and Crewhouse to give us chance to discuss about our vision for an integrated, environmentally and economically sustainable city that could easily be a model for peace in Cyprus. The bicommunal Famagusta Ecocity Project has become an umbrella concept that was embraced by extensive number of bi-communal work groups for a sustainable and peaceful coexistence in the island.
