CARDET newsletter – September


The challenges of young people in their path towards employment were discussed in the forum we have organised together with the Cyprus Youth Council as part of our SELF-E project on September 12, 2020. The forum was an excellent opportunity for the team of the project to present SELF-E’s outputs and achievements demonstrating new approaches and methods to support young people and help them nurture their career.
The event featured a round table discussion with 3 key-note speakers from different professional backgrounds and was followed by an engaging exchange of views where different approaches and experiences were explored by the participants. The Forum also featured two parallel workshop, giving participants the opportunity to choose from and take part in: a workshop showcasing the tools developed by SELF-E and the added value they can offer to youth workers and a workshop illustrating the prospects and added value of the guiding tools to support youth employment our project Youthshare offers.

Our eMysteries project has released a Toolbox on Close Reading Mystery Detective Stories, a first of its kind toolkit with resources, practices, and examples for teachers to include detective fiction with the use of their mobile devices. The eMysteries Toolbox is built around four modules, and it can either be used independently or be utilised by teachers to engage their students in learning. The Toolbox is available in English, German, Greek, Spanish, and Portuguese on eMysteries’ website.

On September 3, our team visited the Elementary School of Mathiatis to introduce teachers to the toolkits developed by our SOCI@LL project. Teachers of the Mathiatis School had the chance to learn more about the Toolkit for Leaders and the Toolkit for Educators as well as receive information on how they can take advantage of them to introduce and promote social inclusion initiatives within the school community. The toolkits are available on the project’s website.

On September 14, 2020, we met our partners of the 3Cs- ‘Taking the climate change challenge’ project online for the project’s 2nd meeting. The meeting was an opportunity for us to discuss the progress of the project’s outputs, aiming to build the capacities of youth workers to inspire young people to take action against climate change.

A unique new project, SAFE YOUTH, has officially kicked off its work with its first partner meeting this month! This new extremely interesting project entitled The Science of Sexuality Education and Youth Work seeks to support and empower youth workers to be in a position to combat social obstacles, deriving from issues of gender, sexual orientation, and mental health status, young people face. Stay tuned for more information on this exciting new project on our website!

Joining forces with the Municipality of Strovolos, we successfully held a summer school in Troodos to inform and educate middle and high school students about UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate action. The summer school, organised by our project Walk the Global Walk, provided an action packed alternative learning opportunity to the participants, 11 students and 3 teachers, providing them a better conception of the issues at hand as the capacity to take a more active stance and achieve meaningful change at their schools and local community.

The YOUTHShare project continues its work towards supporting unemployed young people in Cyprus by offering opportunities for professional and personal development. To achieve this, the YOUTHShare Key Account Manager, Ms Anna Michael, delivered a number of workshops to young people and youth workers, during September in Nicosia, Strovolos, and Derynia.

Having operated 47 classes around Cyprus, Geia Xara’s third programmatic period has successfully reached its conclusion. Over the course of this time, the project offered Greek language lessons to 500 migrant children and unaccompanied minors, making also available a range of online mini games to support them in their learning. Additionally, it initiated an innovative school-parents mediation service to link the two groups and support the communication between them.

Educators from the schools taking part in the UMARG project are now in the process of developing 20 Mobile Augmented Reality Games’ scenarios to promote digital and civic competences for sustainable development. Through the development of the scenarios and its overall work, the project seeks to exploit and promote the educational potential of Mobile Augmented Reality Games and contribute to enhancing students’ digital and civic competencies. All the scenarios to be developed will be available to all European educators through an open access repository, accessible through the project’s website.

Tue, OCT 20 2020, 09:00 AM @University of Nicosia (EU210)
On the 20th of October we will offer a hands-on practical workshop on the Talent Management for SMEs with a focus on Attracting, Hiring and Retaining Talent in the digital era. The workshop, organised as part of our project Talent 4.0, will be held at the University of Nicosia (Room EU210) and will offer HR professionals, managers and representatives of SMEs a unique opportunity to learn more about key concepts they need to be aware of when in the process of expanding their team of staff as well as to ensure they do not lose capable and valuable employees.

*Pease note that the workshop will be delivered in Greek. More info will soon follow through our website and social media accounts.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we did not have the chance to officially welcome Dr Panagiotis Kosma, the new Head of Education Unit in CARDET. Panagiotis joined CARDET in March 2020, but right before he was officially welcomed by his new team and new office, the coronavirus lockdown started. On 17th September, the Education Unit members surprised Panagiotis with a mini-welcome party, followed by a brief meeting. Welcome on board, dear Panagiotis!

CARDET newsletter – August


The urgency of Climate Change destruction and our active response to this emergency were discussed in this year’s Walk the Global Walk‘s 4-day long summer school that was held in Troodos from the 28th to the 31st of August 2020.
The summer school, benefiting also from last year’s educational and awareness actions, provided an excellent opportunity for team building and to enhance the capacity to collaborate between the Youth student leaders and teachers from Paralimni and Solea High schools, environmental and elected officers from Strovolos Municipality and CARDET’s educational staff.
The results from the deliberations of the participants, through the adherence to active learning, active listening and active collaboration will be presented, in a Manifesto of actions based at large on the Sustainable Development Goal 13 of the United Nations.
Cypriot students at the international summer school in Lisbon, Portugal between 29 and 4 of July 2019.


What is the importance of leadership and wellbeing at work? Why is it important to make sure about our employees’ wellbeing? Such topics were discussed at the online conference we organised, with the support of the CyHRMA on August 27, titled “Leadership and wellbeing at work; Examples and practical approaches“. The conference was organised as part of our project Mindful Managers.

As part of our project Ed.G.E, we have conducted a field research on the gaps and needs of children, parents/ carers, and teachers regarding Gender Equality in Cyprus. The research revealed needs and gaps in Gender Equality at home, in school, and in the wider society, especially on the level of awareness and training.


The Wires-Crossed Consortium, with the support of its local Action Groups, has completed its community audit that sought to evaluate the media capacity of citizens in seven European countries as well as their willingness and capacity to support the development of a Community media in their local area. 
This audit was conducted to assess the digital competence and educational assets present within each community. It was also an important tool to identify areas where additional support or training would be useful. Consecutively, the insights drawn from the research are being utilized by the project team to develop a community media framework for each participating area. This will equip each community with all the knowledge, skills, and competences to develop, manage and maintain a comprehensive media service.

The young people fighting the worst smog in Europe

Jessica Bateman

“We always knew there was a problem with pollution because we can see it,” says Kosta Barsov, who lives in Skopje, North Macedonia. “In winter it stinks – if I open my bedroom window while I’m studying it feels like I’m suffocating. If I go walk my dog, I have to change my clothes when I get back because they smell.
Every day in winter, 16-year-old Barsov opens the AirCare app on his phone and checks the pollution levels around him. “There are two sensors close to my house and it’s always really polluted in winter,” Barsov tells me. If he sees a green circle, the air around him is reasonably clean. If it’s yellow, there’s some pollution but it doesn’t break EU limits. If it’s red or darker, pollution is over the limit, and hazardous to health.
The app has become an essential tool to Barsov, and many others in the city, for understanding where the pollution is and exactly how bad it is. As a result, it has sparked growing awareness, and concern, about the city’s air.

2020 has been a busy year for CARDET. Working tirelessly on a record-high number of projects as well as submitting an exceptional number of new proposals meant that we had serious cause for celebration! Factoring in all of this that we had to deal with the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic, called for some quality team downtime. When the lockdown measures finally eased off at the beginning of the summer, we organised a fun day out, in the form of a beach party, dedicated to all our hard-working staff. On Friday 3rd July, all members of our team took a few hours off to take part in energising and fun, teambuilding activities before enjoying some fish meze at the Governor’s beach in Limassol.
Have you ever been to Beijing, New York, Athens, or Rome on the same day? Have you ever traveled to the outer space or dived into the deepest oceanic rift? If the answer is no, then you probably haven’t experienced Virtual Reality yet.
