🌊 The Famous Project: Beyond a World Record Attempt 🌍

Beyond the sailing record, The Famous Project is a committed initiative. As a partner of The Famous Project, UNESCO, through its Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission in 150 member countries, promotes the advancement of science and its applications to develop essential knowledge and capacities for economic and social progress.

UNESCO Ambassador Alexia Barrier played a key role in launching the Ocean Decade for Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, mobilizing skippers and the public during the 2020 Vendée Globe. Since 2011, @4myplanet.asso founded by Alexia Barrier, has been built around four pillars: Sport, Education, Sciences, and Technology.

Through its scientific and educational missions, The Famous Project aims to shift perceptions about the role of women in ocean racing, inspire young people to believe in their dreams, and motivate them to become the heroes of marine conservation. 🌍⛵️✨

Mission

Dare to speak up, test yourself, throw yourself into the unknown… Dare to realise your dreams.

1 –  A human and social commitment

To highlight the ambitions, successes and strengths of the women of our planet.

The Famous Project wants to offer women, as well as little girls, the opportunity to dare!

2 – An environmental commitment

To better understand the changing climate of our planet.

“A new generation of sensors will be developed and installed for the first time in history on a trimaran. The number of miles we will travel in the two years preceding the world tour with our two boats and during the world tour will be particularly effective in collecting data.

3 – An educational commitment

To raise awarenes and inspire the younger generations by sharing this project with as many people as possible.

“Exchange with children, talk to each other and look at each other eye to eye, it shows them that we are not reality TV stars, it’s not fake… We are real people with our problems.”

4 – A sporting commitment

To illustrate the values of teamwork and commitment within ocean racing, and to show that even the most demanding sporting challenge can be acheived with the right backing/coaching.
