Climate Change Mitigation (Energy) In search of potential transnational project partners. Within the project, an innovative prototype flexible photovoltaic panel would be installed and tested on an area of about 19.900 m2 on the territory of Magyar Suzuki Corporation. The aim is to convert part of the power plant’s energy production to renewable energy that would significantly decrease the carbon footprint of the car manufacturing plant in Esztergom and showcase an ultra-lightweight, unique technology with high energy yield. In order to disseminate the project results, effective communication actions would be realized too.

We want to create a widely used Network of Automatic Bike Sharing in Cyprus, with a direct and easy access to the public. We aim to create favourable conditions by providing incentives that will lead cycling to becoming a widely used alternative means of transportation, which will be smoothly connected with Public Transport.
As a result, our cities will become healthier, with less CO2, more humane and accessible, as well as cleaner. It is important to inform people and slowly build a cycling culture, as well as cultivate the respect and love towards our environment. This way we will be able to leave our children a healthier and more humane environment.
