The Pandoteira project, in collaboration with the Community Council of Psevdas, organised an event in the community titled: “Natura 2000: awareness raising and stakeholder information”. The event took place on June 19, 2023.
The purpose of the event was to inform the members of the local community – as well as neighbouring communities – about the Pandoteira project and the project’s actions. Apart from the Pandoteira project presentation, our team had the opportunity to inform the local population about the importance of the Natura 2000 network.
In addition, participants were introduced to the concept of clustering and the commonalities and characteristics of the Natura 2000 sites which form their cluster and surround their communities.
Members of the Psevdas Community Council, the Mayor of Psevdas and Mayors of the surrounding communities joined the event and had the opportunity to engage in an interesting discussion with our team. During this discussion we were also able to present potential opportunities for the involvement of stakeholders and the general public.
This project action is led by Terra Cypria – the Cyprus Environment Protection Foundation (Action E2.1 Organisation of information and awareness raising activities for targeted stakeholders).
