The Info Day took place in collaboration with the management of the High School, it added.

AWARE team organised first an informative presentation which was followed by an experiential workshop and informative videos.

The team presented the global migratory flows and the increased flows of the last two years in Cyprus, the ways in which the asylum function operates and explained in further detail the reception and integration processes.
