Pathways to Peaceful Coexistence
You voted ‘up’
“Pathways to Peaceful Coexistence” is an online consensus-building platform to help people from all communities in Cyprus explore the key elements of building a common vision for a unified Cyprus in the future.
Long-lasting change in any given context can occur only when it is supported by its people. The more people find a common ground in addressing the existing challenges, the more they trust each other. As a neutral and transparent platform, “Pathways to Peaceful Coexistence” will enable the target users to overcome barriers (physical or social) and share their ideas and recommendations, exploring new narratives and identities for building a common vision together in Cyprus.
One may argue that, in many instances, online platforms tend to be virtual political environments where there are many discussions taking place in a “vacuum” with no real-life impact. “Pathways to Peaceful Coexistence” seeks to overcome this challenge by acting as a bridge between the platform users and policy makers and opinion leaders. Through this online platform, users will share their ideas and build consensus on a recommendation. These recommendations will be then documented as e-publications and shared with policy makers and opinion leaders. As a result, this platform aims to empower users and motivate them to participate in a debate over their own future.
