We are more than happy to announce that the dates of the third training school in Cyprus “Underground Built Heritage as catalyser for Community Valorisation” are fixed with 14-18 of february. You will find here the info-pack and a short overview of the application procedure.

The aim of the school is to provide new skills for planners, decision-makers, project promoters and local development promoters. The training school will address innovative approaches to underground built heritage (UBH) surveys, analysis, monitoring and auditing, the introduction of new tools to empower local communities, and to support planners and decision-makers. This is all done through the case study of the monastery in Agia Napa. For more details, please see the attached Infopack.
