Famagusta Ecocity Project aims to turn the town into a thriving cultural, economic and environmental centre
CNA - Emilia Christofi - Cyprus/NICOSIA 13/01/2016 09:54

Two young women from different walks of life, having the Turkish occupied city of Famagusta as a common link, are working together in a joint effort to convey a message of peace and hope for the future of the town through a bicommunal project entitled “Famagusta Ecocity” (FEP).

Vasia Markides and Ceren Bohac advocate a unified Famagusta, that will be under the umbrella of an ecocity, which would turn the place into a thriving cultural, economic and environmental center that will become an example in the region.

They acknowledge that such a venture takes tremendous planning before the fenced off city called Varosha, sealed by the Turkish military since the second phase of the Turkish invasion in August 1974, reopens to human habitation.
