(CIP) is an independent non-profit, non-governmental organization that addresses the needs and demands of people through their involvement in social and civic life, by simultaneously providing them innovative material and free trainings related with a variety of fields, such as education (including on-line education), inclusion, entrepreneurship and business, culture, labour market and lifelong learning.
CIP mainly aims at the development of education, entrepreneurship and lifelong learning in Cyprus and abroad. To achieve these targets CIP has an ongoing collaboration with the leading universities, schools, NGOs and research organizations in Cyprus for the development of projects, trainings and educational material.
CIP retains a valuable network of professional trainers and educational experts experienced in both formal and non-formal education. This particular network is considered competent to contribute to the implementation of activities related to the initiatives of CIP and its partners.
Our functions/ our vision
CIP is primarily seeking to:
-expand contemporary methods of different levels of education, by developing both formal and non-formal methods of teaching;
-collaborate with the relevant stakeholders to promote research and creativity for the modernization of teaching;
-increase the employability of young people through entrepreneurship education, practical experience and lifelong learning by simultaneously aiming to reintegrate the marginalized or disadvantaged groups such as migrants and refugees into the society in numerous ways and;
-support and train members of its local and international networks in numerous ways such as the exchange of information and good practices, through the sharing of experiences and ideas.
Agriculture is one of the most important socio-economic activities in many of the countries of European South and a key sector for the development and sustainability of rural areas.
During the last decades of the severe economic crises, rural villages have been suffering a dramatic depopulation, thus also encountering difficulties such as, for instance, territorial imbalances and lack of generational relief. As a result, unemployment in rural areas has mainly affected services and agriculture.
A prosperous agricultural sector can only be developed with the involvement of young people: our aging agricultural community needs ‘new blood’ to make the sector more dynamic and open to the on-going technological transformations. However, young
people, young farmers and other new entrants face considerable obstacles activity – among them societal ones- in starting up farming, while the situation is hampered by the prevailing perception that farming constitutes an unattractive or old fashioned
occupation, sometimes with inappropriate social protection.
One of the objectives of EU till 2020 is the reinforcement of agriculture and simultaneously the enhancement of young farmers, by providing them the essential know-how that will enable them to get into the entrepreneurship sector.
Based on such rationale, ‘Agro-entrepreneurship Accelerator’ comes to complete this boost by providing youth workers with all the information needed in order to support young people to enter the world of agro-entrepreneurship.
The basic idea of the project is the implementation of an Agro-entrepreneurship training, which will constitute the distillate of the participating organizations’ contribution.
Inasmuch all the partners have been recognized for the vital role of agriculture education in relation to young people, they have decided to establish an innovative, specialized international training. This training will enable youth workers to gain theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of agriculture. Hence, the fundamental aim of the training is the provision of a contemporary pedagogical material appealing to youth workers, which will consequently operate as the main catalyst in inspiring young people to apply agro-entrepreneurship.
‘Agro-entrepreneurship accelerator’ will not only enrich youth workers knowledge concerning the field but it is also seeking to contribute to the reduction of youth unemployment by boosting rural and regional economy through the creation of new agribusinesses, or the involvement of a greater percentage of young people in the agricultural sector. More specifically, the amplification of education in combination with the creation of an unprecedented strong networking amongst youth workers
with strong interest in the sector of agriculture, will definitely help to refresh the economic activities in rural areas, thus aiming to regional development, a fact that provides an additional quality and an added value to the project.
To conclude with, ‘Agro-entrepreneurship accelerator’ project aims at the education of the next generation of entrepreneurs who are concerned with the agricultural ramifications of entrepreneurship. This target will be successfully accomplished through the production of capable influential multipliers, such as civil society organizations and youth workers who will eventually be fully-educated to educate, and therefore to exploit the material derived from the project.
More analytically, by the integration of a range of well-designed non-formal methods, ICT tools and educational material in the normal activities of the above-mentioned organizations, the potential agroentrepreneurs will be trained by youth workers to maximize both their entrepreneurial skills and the agricultural know-how, thus identifying those challenges of our times which might enable them to develop solutions and models for sustainable agro-businesses.
Specific objectives of the training as they result from the specially-developed workshop:
– The provision of NFE tools to youth workers/leaders in order to spread awareness about agricultural entrepreneurship;
– The development of specific competences in planning/executing NFE activities targeted at young people, with a focus on youth in rural areas;
– The development of entrepreneurial skills aimed at supporting the growth of a new generation of agricultural entrepreneurs;
– The reinforcement of youth involvement in agriculture;
– To generate a new network, capable to develop knowledge based strategic partnerships concerning agro-entrepreneurship.
The international training course ‘Agro-entrepreneurship Accelerator’ will be hosted in Larnaca by‘CIP’ from 20 to 26/11/2018 in cooperation with partner organizations from the following 16 countries:
Germany, Greece, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Poland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden, Romania, Bulgaria, UK and Spain. Each of the above organizations will be represented by 2 participants.

How to get to Larnaca from Paphos airport
Please check the detailed schedule at http://www.kapnosairportshuttle.com/ and then book your tickets. In case you miss the bus, you will not be charged. The payment is made in Cyprus at Kapnos station. The booking guarantees you a sit in the bus.
You can take either Travel Express from 0800 – 14:00 (sometimes from 06:00 to 1700) (you have to book in advance http://www.travelexpress.com.cy/ ) or Kapnos Airport Shuttle (you better book in advance).
Please check the prices and choose the cheapest one. The travel express will bring you to the venue directly and with Kapnos you will have to take another bus from the central station in Larnaca to the venue (Cactus Hotel in 6-8 Tyrimou Street).The nearest bus station is Oum Charam with bus 425,
http://www.cyprusbybus.com/busesmap.aspx . Remember to ask people or the bus driver for help, Larnaca is a small place, everyone knows the hotel and the bus drivers are very friendly. If you arrive or depart during the programme period, one of our volunteers will pick you from Kapanos shuttle in Larnaca, in this case you will not need to take a second bus.
So from Paphos International Airport one of the options is to take KAPNOS Airport Shuttle to Larnaca. Before exiting the airport, search for the Airport Shuttle KAPNOS (meaning – in Greek- and moving like SMOKE!) and buy your ticket to Larnaca, and then search for your bus outside the airport. The ticket will cost around 15 Euros from Paphos (oneway ticket, the amount for the tickets is already included in the given budget, keep The receipt!), and the 80-90-minute-long trip.
How to get to Larnaca from Larnacas airport
For the first and the last day of the TC we most probably (upon availability of our members) pick you from the airport (first day) or the hotel (last day) using the private cars of our members.
When you arrive in Larnaca we will arrange someone to pick you up from the airport.
From Larnaca airport you can also take the bus number 425 http://www.cyprusbybus.com/RouteDetails.aspx?id=106 that has a stop very near to the hotel. The nearest bus station is Oum Charam with bus 425, http://www.cyprusbybus.com/busesmap.aspx
Remember to ask, Larnaca is a small place, everyone knows the hotel and the bus drivers are very friendly for sure other busses pass very near the hotel.
Please note that participants who arrive or depart at dates that are different from the schedule, they have to make their own arrangement to and from the airport at their cost.
