Awake Within the Walls (Άγρυπνοι Εντός των Τειχών) was a citizens' group in the walled city of Nicosia, active in the period 2007-2011.
We are a group of residents who have consciously chosen to live in the historic center of Nicosia. We experience the life of the city with all its unique qualities, its beauty and its problems on a daily basis. Our perspective and special awareness can contribute creatively and decisively to the life of the city. The citizens’ group “AWAKE WITHIN THE WALLS” has been formed with the purpose of playing an active role in community issues. This initiative aims to call on all those who live within the walls to help lay the foundations for a meaningful revitalization of our historic city. Our immediate concern is the improvement of quality of life. This can only be accomplished through continuous and consistent care as well as the implementation of appropriate solutions to the serious problems of the area (pollution, traffic, decay, noise, etc.) We believe that a wise town planning strategy based on European Union legislation will promote the smooth running of the city for the benefit of all. 1)
