TWINNEDbySTARS

The project aims at increasing the competitiveness of maritime tourism activity in remote territories while contributing to protecting marine biodiversity, preserving cultural heritage, and developing marine astrotourism. To do so, the project acts in three areas: strengthening partnerships already in operation, capacity building, and co-creation opportunities for the design and implementation of transnational eco-tourism products. The project extends across four Atlantic Outermost Regions, which are located at the natural nautical crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, taking advantage of the trade winds, the Canary Current, and the Gulf Stream, eastwards from the Canaries to Martinique and returning westwards via the Azores and Madeira.
