With the occasion for the 10 years of the Cyprus Centre’s for Environmental Research and Education of the Holy Bishopry of Limassol functioning I congratulate you for the multidimensional and praiseworthy work you produce. The Orthodox Church contributing to the protection and preservation of the natural environment has declared the 1st of September of each year as the Panorthodox Day for the Protection of the Environment.
Within this context the Holy Bishopry of Limassol ha founded the Cyprus Centre for Environmental Research and Education that has been providing specialised free of charge programmes of environmental education, research and information.
The Cyprus Centre for Environmental Research and Education within these 10 years of functioning and offering has achieved to successfully train thousands of Primary and Secondary educational level students and students of Higher Education from all over Cyprus.
The fact that CYCERE within these 10 years has been awarded with the Pancyprian Award for Environmental Education, the Cyprus Radiotelevision Authority award and the Panhelenic award for Educational Websites, is quite impressive.
My congratulations for the work performed by the Cyprus Centre for Environmental Research and Education are sincere and hearty. Warm congratulations also awarded to the Honorary Chairman of CYCERE, Bishop of Limassol Fr. Athanasios for blessing and supporting this work.
I was given the chance to witness myself the quality of the work produced by CYCERE. I also came across the natural environment of great excellence in which the Centre lies and the multidimensional contribution of CYCERE’s officials. It is with great joy I receive the role of the protector of the Cyprus Centre for Environmental Research and Education of the Holy Bishopry of Limassol and I sincerely feel the responsibility of contributing to this environmental and educational aspect.
We all need to reinforce the work of CYCERE’s for the protection of the environment and the education of our youth.
With appreciation and respect,
Spouse of the President of Cyprus
