The Home for Cooperation will be implementing the “bi-communal Europe Direct Centre” project, under the name Europe Direct Ledra Palace Area, for the period 2022 and 2025.
For detailed information on the Center and its activities, please visit the EUROPE DIRECT Ledra Palace Area Website.
What is Europe Direct?
Europe Direct Ledra Palace Area is a part of the pan-European network which numbers more than 400 centres in 28 EU member states with the financial support from the EU Commission. It is managed by the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR) and it is housed at the Home for Cooperation, in the Ledra Palace UN Buffer Zone area.
The overall aim of the Centre is to inform EU citizens across the island about their rights within the Union and the opportunities available to them. With its unique location, the Centre works inter-communally to raise awareness on the benefits of EU citizenship, and to promote EU values and principles.

Europe Direct Ledra Palace Area
The mission of Europe Direct Ledra Palace Area, in accordance with that of the Europe Direct Information Centres network, is to inform European citizens about the EU, in particular about the rights of EU citizens and the EU’s priorities. The centre will aim to promote participatory citizenship at a local and regional level and provide information on EU legislation and how this is being implemented in Cyprus. Information on the various EU programmes, grants and funding opportunities available to individuals and organisations in Cyprus will also be provided so as to increase opportunities for employment and education for citizens.
Europe Direct is located in the Home Gallery Building, opposite Home for Cooperation, within the UN Buffer Zone in Nicosia. The Centre is located at the Ledra Palace crossing point between the two sides of the Green Line providing easy access to all communities of the Island. It aims to answer your questions in person and also hosts EU publications, materials, events and gatherings, transforming the Centre into a meeting point and a shared space.
The Centre is open five days a week from 10.00 am until 17.00 pm. Please contact us via email at email@example.com to make an appointment.
