“Columba-Hypatia: Astronomy for Peace”Â is a joint astronomy outreach project by GalileoMobile and the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR) which will take place on the divided island of Cyprus. The aim of the project is to use astronomy as a tool for promoting meaningful communication and a Culture of Peace and Non-violence between the various communities living on the divided island. At the same time the project aims to inspire young people, through astronomy, to be curious about the world we live in, about science and the cosmos. To achieve this, we will conduct activities in schools in the North and South of the border as well as bring the children together at the Home for Cooperation, a neutral space in the United Nations controlled “buffer zone”, to engage in astronomy activities and explore the cosmos together. This will facilitate the goal of bringing together people from the different communities of Cyprus “under the same sky”Â, to construct bonds based on similarities, rather than focusing on our differences.
