Youth Promoting Peace

Our overall VISION is to empower the people to both communities in Cyprus (Turkish and Greek) to assume responsibility in coming closer together, working together, and appreciating each other’s culture by increasing the level of knowledge on all matters through electronic and computerized communication that will allow interaction between people working on the same problem, archiving and searching of data as well as sending and receiving of electronic messages. The specific vision which underpins the project “Technology For Peace” is to enhance in Cyprus one of the most basic human rights, the right of communication, by applying modern technology in the service of peace with emphasis on the usage of internet and internet-based applications. A promising and creative way to enhance inter-communal communication where there exist substantial hindrances to direct contact between peoples is through the use of the Internet. Cyberspace and Internet provide an efficient, fast, traceable, confidential, organized, time and space independent means of communication. As individuals and organizations throughout the world continue to demonstrate, the Internet can overcome the challenge posed by physical separation, whether due to geographic, political or other reasons, by effectively moving discourse into “cyberspace”.
