Nicosia Hub

Founded in 2014 in the divided capital of Cyprus, the Nicosia hub aims to promote peaceful co-existence through entrepreneurship and youth empowerment, and is defined by the values of commitment and responsibility, pro-activity and inclusion. Nicosia Shapers come from a variety of backgrounds such as entrepreneurship, civil society, law, arts and the academia. Among other initiatives, the Nicosia Hub has organised “Young people #shapeCyprus” a youth conference about the future of a united Cyprus with Mr Espen Barth Eide, a Managing Director of the Forum from 2014-2016, various Meet the Leader Sessions and the “Refugee Fun Days” initiative, bringing together refugees with the local community over social activities and games.
