The Cyprus Conservation Foundation [CCF] promotes environmental and conservation education and awareness on the island. We are involved with today’s decision-makers and with the young people who will be tomorrow’s leaders and policy-makers. The Cyprus Conservation Foundation is a charitable trust incorporated in 1992, the aims of which are:
To promote environmental and conservation education and awareness for today’s decision-makers and for young Cypriots, who will be tomorrow’s leaders and policy-makers.
Through seminars, reports and other suitable means, to advise and encourage the public and private sector to take proper account of environmental considerations when formulating policies or undertaking activities.
The CCF has established an Environmental Studies Centre, based in the village of Kritou Terra, close to the Akamas Peninsula. The Environmental Studies Centre [ESC] is located in a restored primary school in the village of Kritou Terra, which is on the Laona plateau within the proposed Akamas National Park at the western tip of the island of Cyprus. The Cyprus ESC is the first and probably the only centre for practical environmental education or "field studies" on the island of Cyprus. Groups of students of all ages come to study ecology, geography, tourism and other environmental subjects appropriate to the area, following programmes from 1 to 10 days in length. Course programmes are designed to meet the needs of individual groups, based always on the principle that there is no better classroom to learn about nature and the landscape than the countryside itself.
