Who we are
- Together Cyprus (TC) was founded with the aim of actively engaging citizens in both environmental and social issues. The organisation has grown to be the most modern and successful volunteer network on our island. Each of its actions is carried out in close cooperation with the Office of the Environment Commissioner and the Office of the Commissioner for Volunteerism and NGOs as well as over six hundred collaborations established with local authorities, Public and Private Organisations, NGOs and other bodies.
- TC is currently the only organisation in Cyprus that has incorporated the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals into its agenda while pursuing a horizontal social welfare and circular economy strategy. Apart from the above, the term Corporate Social Responsibility – is a priority in every partnership we develop with each individual organisation. The mentality of our organisation is to create synergies solely with entities that act to contribute to addressing environmental and social issues.
For the aforementioned reason we are the first NGO to join the CSR Cyprus network, the national platform for promoting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals though Corporate Social Responsibility strategies.
Together Cyprus has been working closely with the following International Organisations for a better, free of trash world. We are also proud to announce that our organisation is one of the founding members of the World Cleanup Day
The dynamic development of our organisation is a result of the recognition of our efforts by the wider public and at the same time that our team members have been recognised locally and internationally for their leadership and world changer abilities.
We wanted to grow further and therefore brought on board people with scientific expertise to bridge the gap between academia, society and the environmental enhancement in the context of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Some of the research programs that our team members have been working on are the following.
If one were to reflect the spirit and philosophy of our team, then that would be a huge mosaic of people. All of them whose respect and love for the environment and the striving for a common future is becoming a reality. Our aim is to spread the message of volunteering and cooperation between organised groups of the society by developing strong relationships of trust between all citizens and in particularly those with fewer opportunities.
