ATLANTIC_SUNSET brings together researchers from the Atlantic Area to make the most of the beautiful sunsets and related events in Western Europe.

The main goal is to promote the West Coast as a tourist destination, make the local economy more diverse and stop people from moving away. The project is all about finding the best places to watch the sunset, working with local communities and businesses, and creating a tourist plan for people who might want to visit. Partners believe that by focusing on the sunset, they can boost the economy of the West European coast. They want to make sure everyone feels included and come up with new ideas.

The project aims to make the West Coast more valuable for development, thus contributing to being mindful of the environment and social concerns, and finding ways for tourism to work well with other activities in the area.
