Public outreach activities are crucial to our project. ARETI will disseminate its findings to the public, especially to young schoolchildren through hands-on activities (e.g. sorting and identifying cattle elements as well as identifying cattle pathologies, story-telling and clay cattle figurine making) and an animated interactive video, which will present in brief the diachronic history of cattle on the island. Our activities will be hosted in several public spaces and museums across the island, including the Cyprus Natural History Museum. STAY TUNED!
