Responding to the need for mainstream inter-communal dialogue and pan-Cypriot cooperation mechanisms on all levels of society, particularly among young people, the Famagusta youth centre, Magusa Genclik Merkezi (MAGEM) and Cultural Movement of Limassol EPILOGI have designed a number of joint inter-communal activities to be realized between May and August 2012. The activities include intercultural youth festivals, youth camps in rural areas, painting and photo sessions together with exhibitions, the creation of a traditional food catalogue and many opportunities for young people to come together in Limassol, Famagusta and Omodos.
