A journey of unity and stories – Multicultural day

On 15 June 2024, our collaboration with Lemessos 2030 with the support of Limassol municipality and Intercultural council Limassol, on their series of events ‘Out there together” we brought a unique experience to life – a multilingual and multicultural day bus ride that showcased how we can create a common and inclusive space full of stories and memories in public transport. This special and unique event in Limassol was more than just a ride; it was a moving tapestry of diverse cultures, languages, and personal stories, demonstrating the power of unity and shared spaces.
