Overview of Project

“Columba-Hypatia: Astronomy for Peace” 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 project aims to inspire young people, through astronomy, to be curious about the world we live in, about science and the cosmos, while also using astronomy as a tool for promoting meaningful communication and a culture of peace and non-violence. We will conduct educational astronomy activities and explore the cosmos with children and the public from the various communities living on the island, with the goal of inspiring a sense of global citizenship “under the same sky” and to look beyond borders by promoting cultural exchange.
