AKTI Partners with Norsensus Mediaforum for Digital Engagement!

We are excited to announce a dynamic collaboration between AKTI Project and Research Centre, and Norsensus Mediaforum, a Norwegian non-profit media organisation, within the framework of the project ‘’Communication tools for effective public engagement and advocacy’’.

Following their excellent partnership and collaboration, for the project ‘’AdvocaCY: Participate, learn, decide, challenge: stronger Cypriot civil society for sustainability, advocacy, and change!’’, which benefits from a grant under the Active Citizens Fund Cyprus program, the two organisations are joining forces once again. Their new initiative aims to enhance AKTI’s digital presence while boosting its capabilities for public engagement, with a particular focus on leveraging digital communication tools and practices.

Through a three-day training /capacity-building activity with Norsensus Mediaforum in Oslo, Norway, AKTI’s team will gain valuable insights and knowledge to maximize public outreach, improve digital communication, and build stronger networks.

AKTI’s AdvocaCY project, identified key needs within the Civil Society of Cyprus, including capacity building for better public outreach, enhanced digital communication skills, and effective networking. This partnership will empower AKTI to address these needs by learning from Norsensus Mediaforum’s expertise and experience, while the knowledge gained will be shared through the AdvocaCY project, creating a spill-over effect. Ultimately, this initiative will result in a powerful digital communication capacity-building tool, fostering more effective public engagement not only for AKTI but also for CSOs across the island and creating networks of active citizens.

Stay tuned for more information!

The ”Digital communication tools for effective public engagement and advocacy” project, benefits from a grant under the Active Citizens Fund Cyprus programme, funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway, through the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021.

Press release: Cypriot researchers are transferring knowledge about innovative bioplastic products in Croatia, Greece, and Montenegro.

In Croatia, Greece, and Montenegro, Cypriot researchers from AKTI Project and Research Centre and ISOTECH Ltd environmental research and consultancy conducted knowledge transfer events related to bioplastics, as part of the research project “SEALIVE”. The knowledge transfer events included an exhibition of the eight bioplastic products developed by SEALIVE, as well as the implementation of participatory workshops involving key stakeholders, to identify challenges in the use of bioplastic products and potential solutions.

The Cypriot researchers embarked on an intensive journey. This began on September 26th, 2023, in Dubrovnik, Croatia, continued to Kumbor, Montenegro on September 28th, 2023, and most recently reached Chania, on the Greek island of Crete on October 2nd, 2023. In cooperation with local organisations, such as Maritimo Recycling in Croatia, the SeaTecHub project team in Montenegro, and the Cretan organisation IFOAM AgriBioMediterreneo, they informed over 500 stakeholders during the exhibition of the eight bioplastic SEALIVE products and conducted three decision-making workshops involving a total of 178 selected stakeholders from various sectors, including local and regional government, fisheries, aquaculture, plastic producers, academics, researchers, representatives of the maritime sector, technical advisors, and conservationists of protected areas.

Dr. Xenia I. Loizidou, who was responsible for the scientific aspects of the events, stated to the Cyprus News Agency, “Plastic pollution poses one of the greatest threats to our planet. There is an urgent need to supply the market with alternative products that do not rely on fossil fuels. We are pleased with the overwhelming participation in our events in these three countries. It reflects the significant interest from both the market and society in environmentally friendly materials. We look forward to the rapid transition to green practices in the plastics industry, as plastic pollution has reached a critical point, and our planet’s resilience is at stake. We take pride as Cypriot scientists in sharing knowledge and technology to advance sustainability on the international stage.”
