Cypriot Alumni Association

On the 11th of August 2021, CFP hosted its very first Virtual Alumni Academic Event.
The event consisted of a variety of speakers. Professor Neophytos Loizides presented “Displaced Persons and Users of Properties in Cyprus: Settlement Scenarios and the Future of a Peace Referendum” and Dr. George Kyris discussed “Recognition, Efforts of International Organizations and the Opportunities Existing Within Civil Society.” Our own Alumni members Meltsia Economou made a presentation on “Ledra Palace: A Point of Reference” and Selinay Hürses hosted the event and prearranged the lecturers. Through this event, CFP Alumni across Cyprus had the chance to reconnect with their CFP roots, their pairs and friends from different graduating years.
The event flowed nicely with the input of CFP Alumni, and members even had the chance to form new personal connections through private breakout rooms.  Provided all goes well with the current pandemic, the CFP Alumni Association hopes to host future events in person.
We would also like to thank Jesse Sondheimer for the event’s tech support, Simge Kahvecioglu Zekican, CFP’s Head Coordinator, for distributing the invites to all Cypriot alumni, Maria Asvesta for supporting this initiative, and all the CFP Alumni Association’s Volunteers.
We hope to see everyone at the next CFP Alumni Association event and send thanks to everyone who joined and helped organize and prepare the event.
Feel free to contact us if you would like the recorded version of the event.
