The Youth Board of Cyprus and Larnaka Municipality are pleased to announce the renewal of their cooperation on Youth Makerspace Larnaka, the innovative, pioneer project that will continue its operation. The agreement renewal was signed by the President of the Youth Board of Cyprus Prodromos K. Alambritis and Larnaka Mayor Andreas Vyras during their meeting at Larnaka City Hall on the 9th of July 2020. Youth Makerspace project was launched two years ago and since then it has managed to establish itself as a landmark of technology, creativity and STEAM learning philosophy.
Youth Makerspace Larnaka is an initiative of the Youth Board of Cyprus, housed at an emblematic building of Larnaka Municipality. Larnaka Municipality realises the significance of the project and its positive impact not only on Larnaka youth but also on young people on the island. Hence it keeps hosting Youth Makerspace Larnaka.
Youth Makerspace Larnaka aims at enhancing youth entrepreneurship, offering young people of Larnaka region and beyond access to high-end technological equipment that will enable them to develop their business ideas and prototypes and put them in practice. In its two years of operation, more than 2000 young people have visited the venue and attended workshops, seminars and other events and activities, through which they achieved skills development and empowerment.
The Youth Board of Cyprus and Larnaka Municipality would like to see Youth Makerspace growing as an incubator of ideas, offering space, tools, equipment and support to young people, enabling them to develop their business ideas in fields such as technology, architecture, arts, etc.
