2005-07-13 11:51:24

Nicosia, Jul 13 (CNA) -- The European Union's huge information truck that travels around Europe in the framework of its anti - discrimination campaign at the workplace, arrives in Cyprus this Saturday.

The yellow and blue information truck, with the motto ''For Diversity. Against Discrimination'', will make a stop at the coastal town of Limassol on Saturday and will visit Nicosia on Monday.

The truck offers an extensive action and entertainment programme that is co-ordinated together with the campaign partners including ministries, unions and employment associations in each country.

Visitors will receive information and consultation about how people can protect themselves against discrimination at the workplace with the help of EU directives.

The 17-metres-long vehicle features a 50 sqm-large stage which is fully equipped with the latest technology.

The most significant development since last year is the new wheelchair lift that guarantees users of all wheelchair types to access the truck easily at the push of a button. It works with an integrated electric motor that can carry up to 200 kg to the stage height of 1,40 m.

The lift was designed exclusively to match the truck and is one of the highest mobile lifts in Europe.
