They campaign to encourage responsible waste disposal and the adoption of a “green” lifestyle based on “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” (in that order of importance). And they do this by their three crucial pillars: 1) education 2) action 3) prevention.

We can all think about what we can do on a personal level to help combat climate change, but it’s extremely important  to also think about what we can do in our community to ensure that climate issues are addressed. And that’s where we come in!

Simply put, LMCG are a couple of volunteers doing some amazing initiatives and they need the extra hands of help to accelerate their projects and make their vision for Cyprus happen sooner rather than later. Democracy is a participatory sport and they have to be part of making the world a sustainable one for us and generations to come where climate change is going to be very evident.

They’re super passionate and dedicated to guiding the organization towards better heights and being part of the path is a very exciting and fulfilling journey. So do consider getting on the frontlines of the climate movement with LMCG. They are the definition of changemakers!

Please note that serving on the Board is completely voluntary. There is no remuneration or financial compensation of any kind (excluding costs in relation to Board Members’ duties).
