105 I Sustainability: World climate change. Water management in a Mediterranean island (Larnaca - Cyprus)    

H2O is a simple formula leading to the possibility of creating life. Water is life. A small change in its characteristics can imply a complete change of the balance of the Earth. Today, our major concern is the possibility of water shortage, or its excess, both causing climate changes. Thus, the resulting human consequences range from large-scale migration to potential conflicts.


Climate change has become a significant and concerning issue over the years. It has severe impacts on several aspects of the environment, including water resources. Mediterranean islands are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change. One Mediterranean Island that is significantly impacted by climate change is Cyprus. The changing climate patterns have resulted in decreasing rainfall and increasing temperatures, leading to decreased freshwater availability. Additionally, the increase of tourism (measuring as much as four times the island’s population) has put more pressure on the already limited water resources. Consequently, measures have been taken to address the issue. One of the most crucial is water conservation, which involves managing the water supply-and-demand effectively. Reuse of treated wastewater, rainwater harvesting, and the use of efficient irrigation systems have been implemented to reduce the demand for freshwater and public education campaigns have been launched to raise awareness and encourage people to adopt water conscience. This course aims to demonstrate how water stands as an essential resource that is vital for the development, and prosperity of any nation and how Cyprus faces the above challenges.


Course fee: 490 euros per person.

It includes the course fee, entry tickets where needed, and transportation within the working days of the course. Airport transport and accommodation are not included.

Learning objectives

The main objective of this course is to promote awareness about water conservation, sustainability of freshwater resources and how can these situations be managed in an island with scarce water resources but high consumption due to tourism. Additionally, we aim to raise awareness to nature conservation as the island hosts a vast variety of migratory birds like flamingos, ducks, swans etc. in protected wetlands.


Furthermore, we aim to facilitate our participants in their quest for networking and collaborating with other participants and institutions. Following the original objectives of Erasmus+, we take very seriously the exchange of ideas, experiences and methodologies. Thus, our day to day programme, includes theory, discussion, cultural activities and practice.


Our courses are thought in a way that theory and practice combine with our participants´ working experiences. Exchange of practices and methodologies provide a rich environment of examples and ideas that each one can transfer to their own reality and with their own means. The pedagogical material that we offer can be used, open and free under Creative Commons (CC) which is one of the criteria of Erasmus+. We always try to meet all methodologies so our material is always linked to ICT for those who can apply them in their teaching process.


Participants are asked to create a simple activity (teaching or other) and upload in on our working platform. In this way, produced material can be shared among the group and thus, enrich their pedagogical activities obtained.


To ensure optimum enjoyment of the course, we communicate the next day´s briefing and we create a group communication tool in order to avoid changes or unexpected situations. Our goal is to enhance the exprerience and to construct relationships among the participants and our trainers that can lead to future partnerships and collaborations.

Certification details

We take our participants' personal development seriously and consequently, we offer a Certificate of Attendance that is in line with the specifications of Erasmus Quality Standards for Mobilities. The Certificate states the number of hours of the course (30), the place and date of the course and the participant's name. Our participants usually need to produce a simple activity/product which will be uploaded in our working platform. Upon the completion of this task, the participants can receive the certificate.


We also certify and sign the Mobility Agreement, Quality Commitment and Europass Mobility or any other document our participants wish to obtain in order to comply with Erasmus+ and/or their personal development.
