The campaign ‘We are cleaning up cycling and hiking areas! We participate actively!’ has been successfully completed with the participation of 1,000 students from 19 elementary schools of Limassol. The cleaning effort was organized by the Limassol Tourism Development and Promotion Company for the period 21-25 May 2018, as part of the co-funded “Civitas Destinations” program.
Aiming to promote viable urban mobility instruments in a cleaner environment more accessible to the wider public, the campaign concentrates on designated pedestrian walkways, cycle paths, parks and tourist spots. In this way there is a significant contribution to the development of environmentally-friendly behaviors and the familiarization of children with hiking and cycling opportunities in the district.
The Limassol Tourism Board’s goal is to establish and promote the adoption of different locations by Primary Schools for the development and cultivation of students' environmental awareness and the promotion of health-related activities.
