Sustainable Development Education Day, Nicosia
Science Day is an annual event held on May 25th and organised by the Nicosia based French School “Arthur Rimbaud” where all the classes, ranging from 3 to 15 year old pupils, present their projects on a chosen subject.
This year’s subject is Sustainable Development.
In parallel to the presentation and exhibition of the work done by the pupils, public lectures from specialists for the pupil audience will be organized, and an advertising contest will be held on the same subject.
The idea behind this contest is to stimulate the youngsters in order to present their perception of Sustainable Development and their understanding regarding one of the biggest challenges of modern society. In order to achieve this, the only constraint will be the size of the poster and that it must include images and a slogan in Greek, French or English.
For this contest other Cypriot schools that were invited to participate and present their work are the High School of Kiti and the High School of Strovolos.
- THE LECTURES -
Mr. Philippos Drousiotis, Director of Cyprus Sustainable Tourism Initiative,

Mr. Charalambos Theopemptou, the Cyprus Commissioner for the Environment on Environment and Quality of life
For this contest small groups of pupils from the age categories of 3–7, 8–11 and 12 –15 will prepare an advertising poster.
These posters will be graded by a panel of judges on their content, relevance, appearance and other criteria in order to determine the best poster for each age group. The panel of judges will consist of:
Mr. Rives, the French Ambassador
Mr. Theopemptou, the Cyprus Commissioner for the Environment
