The CESC, classrooms and residential wing
The CESC was set up by the Cyprus Conservation Foundation to educate future generations of decision-makers in environmental issues. It is based in the former school of Kritou Terra, a Laona Project Village. Fully operational since 1996, and extended in 2004-6, with assistance from the Cyprus Government, it has offered courses throughout the last two decades to over 55.000 pupils and students from Cyprus and abroad. Students are housed on the premises or in local accommodation and eat at local tavernas, contributing to the economy of the region.
