23rd Session of the House of Elders in Cyprus
Last March 2022, the 23rd Session of the House of Elders was held at the Filoxenia Conference Centre, under the auspices of the President of the House of Representatives, Mrs. Annita Demetriou.
The House of Representatives, aiming at its healthy interaction with society, supports activities that enhance citizenship, participatory democracy, pluralism and transparency and is interested in highlighting various problems of civil society for which the members of the House, as representatives of the people, seek solutions. It is in this context that the Cypriot Parliament’s support for the institution of the House of Elders comes into play.
The institution of the House of Elders, which is managed by the Pancyprian Coordinating Council for Volunteerism, aims to ensure the quality of the services offered to our elderly people, especially to ensure their inalienable right to live in dignity as people who have contributed to society, as well as to formulate policies that will effectively support the elderly.
