Flora Nostra

An educational book for children and young people

The educational book (in e-book format) Flora Nostra: Εικαστικές χαρτογραφήσεις της χλωρίδας γύρω μας [Flora Nostra: Using Art to Map the Flora Around Us ] is divided into two parts, which focus on: edible plants inside and outside of our home gardens; and the palm, a characteristic tree that is featured repeatedly both on Kitchener’s map of Cyprus and on other detailed maps of Nicosia and Limassol. Overall, the Flora Nostra educational proposal offers many possibilities for application in formal primary, secondary and tertiary education, as well as in promoting general inf1ormal education. It is based on a flexible methodology that can be used in both urban and rural areas of Cyprus.

This educational book is part of the research programme titled ‘Economy, environment, and landscape in the Cypriot longue durée: A Combined Analysis Using Historical Data and Geoinformatics Applications’, which was developed by the Department of Geography of Harokopio University and funded by the Sylvia Ioannou Charitable Foundation (2019-2023). Heads of the research group: Christos Chalkias (Professor, Harokopio University) – Antonis Hadjikyriacou (Assistant Professor, Panteion University).
