Young overseas Cypriots converge in Nicosia

 

November 2014

Over 40 young Cypriots from across the world, met in Nicosia last month, for NEPOMAK’s 7th General Conference. This year’s conference marked 12 years of continuous service by NEPOMAK to young people across the diaspora, since NEPOMAK was founded in 2002. At the conference, delegates held workshops to discuss the improvement of existing NEPOMAK programmes, the establishment of new programmes, the latest developments on the Cyprus issue and they also developed a network of friends from across the globe.

Delegates discussed how to enrich NEPOMAK’s programmes designed to promote Cypriot history, heritage and the Greek language in the Diaspora including, NEPOMAK’s Discover Cyprus Programme. Delegates also discussed plans to take forward NEPOMAK Professionals – launched after NEPOMAK’s conference four years ago, it has gone onto become the largest online network of overseas Cypriot professionals. Delegates also developed plans to develop a mobile application, in partnership with CYTA and Cypriot start-ups, to act as platform to bring the diaspora closer to Cyprus and enable the youth of the diaspora to network.

During its conference, NEPOMAK identified new ways to support the President of the Republic, working with POMAK and PSEKA, in the ongoing negotiations to find a just, viable and lasting solution to the Cyprus issue. In particular, delegates focused on how to raise awareness of the Cyprus issue through online media, including the mobile application. Delegates also received updates on the current negotiations from the President, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Chief Negotiator.

Conference delegates also announced the introduction of two full-fees scholarships for young Cypriots. One scholarship at the University of Cyprus for an MBA and the other scholarship will be at the Open University of Cyprus in any discipline. Further details will be announced in due course.

Antonia Savides from the UK replaced outgoing NEPOMAK President Christos Karaolis who served for eight years.
