IAW CONGRESS HOSTED BY CYPRUS
Dear friends, members of the International Alliance of Women, greetings from Cyprus.
It is with great pleasure our organization has accepted to host the IAW Congress, which will take place next October on the 20th until 28th, 2017.
The Pancyprian Movement Equal Rights-Equal Responsibilities, was introduced in 1978 and is an Affiliate Member of IAW since 1980.
The organization’s aims are the complete equality between men and women in all sectors, the ELIMINATION of violence against women and children, trafficking of women for sexual exploitation, narcotics and poverty in our country and the rest of the world as well.
Cyprus, the southernmost country in Europe, based on the European institutions, offers protection to all of the island’s visitors. There is a significant number of airline companies that connect the country with the rest of the world, and there are hotels for all kinds of budgets that offer a luxury stay in the island.
The visitors can enjoy the lovely beaches for swimming 9 months a year, tours to significant archeological sites, in Nicosia’s medieval walls and buildings and in numerous museums according to a person’s interests.
For conference purposes and the stay of the participants, we have managed to book in a four star hotel where a meal will be offered including a drink at a very good price and tea/coffee all the day long. The hotel is situated at walking distance from the old city of Nicosia. Therefore, when the conference work is over, participants could walk down the city alleys, buy souvenirs from “Laiki Gitonia”, visit galleries or enjoy a dinner in several restaurants and taverns. There, you can find a variety of different food like Asian, Chinese, Italian, American and of course the traditional Cypriot delicious food.
We are also organizing an excursion to Paphos, which is the European Capital of Culture for 2017. In Paphos you can find the perfectly preserved mosaics in the huge archaeological site. Moreover, we will visit Kolossi’s medieval tower and Kourio, where an ancient theatre has survived, with excellent acoustic and sounding.
