The Let’s do it! campaign is the biggest volunteering project in the world that was initiated in 2008. Since then, it has been organized in 91 countries with 22.128 points of garbage dumps mapped on the world trash map. This project is engaging and brings together millions of volunteers from over 100 countries cleaning up their countries.

Cyprus participated this year for the first time in this campaign. On 29th of September 2012, the ‘Let’s Do It Cyprus’ team took the initiative to the clean up waste from the island’s countryside in a single day with the help of volunteers from all over the island.

Rotaract Club Nicosia Aspelia and Rotaract Club Nicosia joined their forces for this cause. Early Saturday morning all Rotaractors from Nicosia got together and cleaned up waste in a designated area in Aglantzia near the buffer zone.

In this way both Clubs helped to raise awareness, educate and improve attitudes of Cypriot citizens towards waste, recycling and environmental protection. Moreover this project aimed to improve the recycling habits of citizens and support a sustainable society in Cyprus.

The cleaning session was followed by a fellowship lunch where both Rotaract clubs had the opportunity to bond and exchange their experiences on past and future projects.

Let’s do it again next year!

Συναισθηματική Νοημοσύνη: Ο δρόμος προς την Επιτυχία – Emotional Intelligence: the road to success

On 21st February 2012 our Rotaract Club held its third Professional Development for the year on the subject of:

Emotional Intelligence: the road to success

was presented to our club members and our guests on the night by Psychologist, Mrs Christiana Gregoriou.

Στις 21 Φεβρουαρίου 2012 ο  Όμιλος Rotaract Λευκωσίας οργάνωσε την ομιλία με θέμα

Συναισθηματική Νοημοσύνη: Ο δρόμος προς την Επιτυχία

Εισηγήτρια της πιο πάνω ομιλίας ήταν η Ψυχολόγος κα. Χριστιάνα Γρηγορίου,

Η Συναισθηματική Νοημοσύνη είναι μια σχετικά καινούρια έννοια που υποστηρίζει ότι οι μη-ακαδημαϊκές δεξιότητες είναι εξίσου σημαντικές στην προσωπική και εργασιακή επιτυχία. Τα προσωπικά μας χαρακτηριστικά, η ικανότητα μας να επιλύουμε συγκρούσεις, η αυτό-ενημερότητα, η ικανότητα δημιουργίας και διαχείρισης σχέσεων, η ικανότητα διαχείρισης του στρες, η ικανότητα επίλυσης προβλημάτων και η εμπιστοσύνη στον εαυτό και την ομάδα που οδηγεί στη λήψη ρίσκων συνδέονται άμεσα με την εργασιακή εξέλιξη και με την επιτυχία.

Το σεμινάριο περιλάμβανε επεξήγηση της έννοιας ΕΙ, τους τρόπους εκπαίδευσης σε αυτή και το πώς μπορεί να οδηγήσει σε επαγγελματική επιτυχία.

Λίγα στοιχεία παραπάνω για την κα. Χριστιάνα Γρηγορίου

Πτυχίο στην Ψυχολογία (ΑΠΘ), μεταπτυχιακές σπουδές στον τομέα της Θεωρίας της Ψυχανάλυσης και στη Συμβουλευτική/Ψυχοθεραπεία (Essex & Roehampton University), εκπαιδεύσεις στην παρέμβαση σε κρίση και τη συμβουλευτική. Εργάστηκε ως καθηγήτρια ψυχολογίας, ψυχοθεραπεύτρια και εκπαιδεύτρια σε θέματα που αφορούν ενίσχυση αυτοπεποίθησης, διαχείριση άγχους, διαχείριση συναισθημάτων και σχέσεων. Συμμετοχή σε ΜΚΟ που αφορούν τα δικαιώματα παιδιών και νέων αλλά και την καταπολέμηση της φτώχειας και του κοινωνικού αποκλεισμού σε τοπικό και ευρωπαϊκό επίπεδο.

Effective Communication: How to achieve it! (24.01.2012)


On Tuesday 24th  January 2012 our Club held its second Professional Development Event for the 2011-2012 period, once again at the House of the European Union in Nicosia.

Rotaractors, friends and other guests had the pleasure of enjoying a presentation titled “Effective Communication: How to achieve it” , given in Greek by Mrs Andrie Penta.

The presentation was a synopsis of the most important “tools” of communication (such as tone of voice, hand gestures, eye contact, correct use of words etc) and how we can use these tools effectively in every aspect of our life, whether in a professional context or in a social one.

The presentation provided an overview of the differences in verbal and non verbal communication through useful examples as well as a practical guide on how everyone can use these “tools” and of course a few tips on the ever important social networking.

The end of the presentation was followed by a brief Q&A session where any remaining unanswered issues were clarified by Mrs Penta.

Guests, friends and Rotaractors then had the opportunity to socialize and put the nights teachings in practice at the reception area of the House of Europe where refreshments and nibbles were offered for all.
