GreenCyprusCom is happy to announce a partnership with Cyprus Open Studios (COS) aimed to revive Cyprus forests and greenery.
“At COS, we care about Cyprus forests, trees and the environment in general. And personally, I do as much as I can to keep our planet healthy, and encourage others to do the same. ” – Maria Etheridge, the representative of Cyprus Open Studios has stated.
COS offers free island-wide, self-guided tours of studios and work spaces where creative people meet the art-loving public. In this way visitors enjoy one-on-one exchanges and appreciate learning more about what inspires the creators. Visitors are fascinated by demonstrations of techniques – refreshments are also available. The artists love it too; even though it means putting in a little extra work, it is regarded by all as really worth it.
GreenCyprusCom is a non-profit organization, which has launched Cyprus reforestation project with the support of the Department of Forests of the Republic. Shorty after Adopt a Tree campaign followed.
“Starting from 2016, we will put our effort into restoring the island’s forested areas. Our goal is to plant more than twenty thousand of trees and take care of Cyprus forests in a long term. Forests in Cyprus have suffered from devastating forest fires in the last hundred years. We would like to invite all people, interested in restoring and preserving the natural beauty of Cyprus for future generation, to join our project. Together we can make Cyprus greener!” – Veronika Gopenko, co-founder of non-profit organisation GreenCyprusCom.
GreenCyprusCom team hopes that our collaboration continues in the future. With the joint effort we will be able to restore the unique ecosystem of the island and make Cyprus a green paradise of the Mediterranean.
