Cyprus geological heritage educational tool

The main aim of this project has been to promote awareness of the geological history of Cyprus among all the island’s communities and foster a sense of shared geological heritage. In order to do so, we have worked on creating a database with information on the most significant geological sites; developing user-friendly tools that will provide information and knowledge to anyone interested; and disseminating this knowledge as widely as possible.


The publication of all the information on the internet and the use of English, in addition to Greek and Turkish, have helped to expand the reach of the project even further and to provide the opportunity for all people interested – no matter where they live – to access important information and build on their knowledge about the geology of Cyprus.


As we move into the dissemination phase, we welcome the involvement and support of groups who would like to work with us on this project and on helping promote environmental awareness all over the island.
