The mission of the Center is to promote the Mountainous Region of Larnaca regarding environmental and forest issues and in regards to cultural and other parameters. The region is quite interesting in these respects and this is something that needs to be made known and protected.
There is no similar Center in the broader region.
The region, besides a series of environmental problems, is threatened by forest fires, which are caused almost exclusively by humans. Promoting the Center, educating locals and visitors and changing attitudes towards the environment shall contribute significantly towards the protection of the forest and of other environmentally significant regions.
