Environmental poster exhibition was opened at the Ledra Palace

27 November 2006

An exhibition of posters, promoting environmental conscienciousness, has been opened at the Ledra Palace.

The exhibition is co-sponsored by the UNDP, USAID and UNFICYP, with the aim of highlightening the importance of protecting the environment and to improve cooperation and confidence between the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot peoples.

In his opening address, the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative in Cyprus Michael Moller said that there is an urgent need for an integrated and bi-communal response to environmental health issues in Cyprus.

The exhibition, titled `Nature without Boundaries` organized jointly by the United Nations Development Program, USAID and UNFICYP - is being staged on the road outside Ledra Palace.

Among those attending this morning’s opening ceremony was the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative in Cyprus Michael Moller and the American Ambassador Ronald Schilcher.

In an address to the ceremony, Mr Moller underlined the need for integrated, bi-communal response to environmental health issues on the island.

`The buffer zone cannot deter birds from flying across the island, nor can it prevent pollution from affecting the entire island` he said, explaining that the purpose of the exhibition is to remind the people of the inherent value of the nature reserve.

He said it is important that the prime responsibility for managing the common nature heritage of the island is vested in Cypriots themselves.

For his part, the American Ambassador Ronald Schilcher said that the aim of the exhibition is to remind the people of the fact that the nature does not recognise any boundaries.

He said that people – especially the youth – should work together towards preparing a better future and reunifying the island.

The two men – accompanied by Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot children – visited the exhibition.
