Our Story

The Bi-communal Network of Cypriot Youth was founded on the spring of 2019 by 9 Cypriots: Beste, Dimitris, Michalis, Ilsu, Lefteris, Gul, Ismail, Angelos and Panagiotis. The fire of reconciliation was burning in each and every one of them. Everyone had their own unique ideas and concepts on how to breach the gap between the two communities but the dream of seeing a unified Cyprus was kept as the ultimate goal of the team.

Who's in charge

The main team of the BNCY or, as we call it, the Coordinating team is consisted of 4 Greek-speaking and 4 Turkish-speaking Cypriots. The 50-50 ratio ensures that young voices from the two main communities of the island are being represented equally. We want our message to be heard by every single youngster in Cyprus.
