Norwegian Embassy organises Nicosia walk in projects funded by Norway

The Norwegian Embassy is organising a special walking event in the heart of Nicosia, highlighting some of the flagship projects funded by the Norwegian government through the EEA and Norway Grants.

The walk will commence at the Centre for Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) on Saturday, May 18, at 16:30.

In a press release on Wednesday the Norwegian Embassy notes, there will be a guided tour where participants will be visiting supported projects, with stops including the Solidarity Nicosia in Action Network (Chrysaliniotissis, 30-32), Nicosia Town Hall hosting a captivating photo exhibition showcasing projects and stories of the past 20 years, PRIO Cyprus Centre (Arsinois 52), and the Cyprus Museum (Mouseiou 1).
The event will culminate at the Home for Cooperation (Markou Drakou 28) in the UN-controlled buffer zone, where attendees will enjoy a lively street party featuring performances by the bicommunal band Island Seeds and Zildji & Hiktune Project.
“This year marks a significant milestone in the partnership between Norway and Cyprus. For 20 years, our two countries have been together in the European Economic Area – the largest free trade market in the world. During the same period Norway and Cyprus have cooperated within the financial support framework of the EEA and Norway Grants,” the press release says.
Reflecting on this momentous occasion, the Ambassador of Norway to Cyprus, Lajla Jakhelln, expressed her pride in ‘’the consistent collaboration that has flourished between Norway and Cyprus over the past two decades’’. She also thanked all the people, organisations, and stakeholders who have honoured Norway’s commitment to nurturing dialogue and bicommunal exchanges on the island.
“We are proud to mark this anniversary while we will continue to work together towards a green, competitive, and inclusive Europe,” she concluded.
