Children’s Rights Commissioner Calls for Immediate Action During Heatwave

Children’s Rights Commissioner Despo Michaelidou has demanded urgent measures to protect students in Cyprus from the scorching heatwave. She is calling for the quick installation of air conditioning units in schools and flexible school hours to prevent health issues among children. The government has responded by initiating a plan to allocate €45 million for air conditioning, but concerns remain about the timeline as students face crucial exams under potentially harmful conditions.
