Two years official work of municipality, university and non-governmental organizations in Lefke, in order to be a member of International City Residents Association (Cittaslow International), has reached a positive result. Lefke Municipality will take the Cittaslow title in the ceremony which will be held in Sweden on 7 November.
The Cittaslow membership certificate and the flag will be presented to Lefke at the meeting, which will be held in the Falköping city of Sweden on 7 November.
Lefke Municipality had submitted the letter of intent for the Cittaslow membership in March this year. Following Yeniboğaziçi, with the acceptance of Lefke to the membership, the number of Cittaslow titled cities in TRNC will rise to 2.
The goal of the Cittaslow movement which is spread over 182 members in 28 countries today is to move the Slow Food philosophy to the urban dimension.
