This document aims at illustrating the activities of the AHDR for the period covering January 2014 to September 2015. We envisage this to be the first public detailed report on the activities of the AHDR, aiming in the future to publish such reports on an annual basis following the cycle of the academic year from September to September each year.
AHDR Activity Report - January 2014 to September 2015
In the 12 years since its establishment, the AHDR has grown into an active Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) working across Cyprus, with recognition of its work in academic and education circles and a wide network of supporters and collaborators on a local, European and International level.
As a result, the AHDR can claim an important role in the field of history education and education in general in Cyprus and this is an achievement for which all the members of the AHDR should feel proud of.
One of the AHDR’s major projects has been the purchasing and renovating of a derelict building in the Buffer Zone and transforming it into the ‘Home for Cooperation’ (H4C); a unique community centre located in the heart of Nicosia, aiming to act as a bridge-builder between separated communities, memories and visions.
The organisation is currently considering innovative ways of developing its work further, following rapid developments in technology, teaching methodology and the general social, economic and political environment in Cyprus. It aims at offering an environment where everyone in Cyprus, regardless of their background, may have the opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions, mainly on the subject of education and history education in particular, in a divided society.
