This short film features two inspiring 18-year-olds - Alparslan Balci, a Turkish Cypriot and Anna Leonidou, a Greek Cypriot. Living on the divided island of Cyprus, these two young people are active members of Youth Activism - a UNDP-ACT project that aims to encourage and inspire the youth of Cyprus to actively participate in the efforts for a peaceful solution of the Cyprus problem. Alp and Anna are friends, who have worked on joint activities implemented by the project in order to engage young people in peace building, to empower and support them to play an active role in the reconciliation process and to build support structures for them to continue in youth activism. Here, they talk about their work together, and their view on the situation in Cyprus.
