BBC World carry out story work on Cyprus International University Sustainability Work by students

One of the world's biggest media network, the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) has taken it's lens to one of the world's leading institutions in Cyprus, the Cyprus International University, (CIU) where it carried out a story work on the Sustainability Project by students of the university.

Cyprus International University is known for its commitment to the environment on campus and globally. This you can see in the university's teaching, research, public awareness organizations and dedication to sustainability on the campus as a way of life.

Higher education institutions have long played a vital role in the development of innovative, equitable, thriving societies. It is in this spirit that the International Association of Universities (IAU) commissioned BBC Story Works to produce a series exploring the positive changes that institutions are effecting in societies. IAU believes that “at a time where internationalization, democracy and sustainability must reassert their primacy, and where innovation and development is flourishing, universities are perhaps more than ever able to define how the future will look.”

The project dubbed “Aiming Higher: Reaffirming the role of Higher Education Institutions” grouped these positive impacts into 4 categories namely Sustainable Development, Technology, Internationalisation and Value – Based Leadership

In all, 33 reputable Universities over 6 continents worldwide were selected for their notable positive contribution and changes to society. All films of the production can be found here: .

Cyprus International University (CIU) was recognized and selected for our notable contribution and positive impact from 18,000 Universities worldwide. 

Over the past 2 years CIU has focused on instilling in our students the value of diversity and leadership. Being a centre of creativity and sustainability, we stand at the forefront of social change through initiatives that give back to local communities.
