2011 Year of the French Overseas Territories

The Year of the French Overseas Territories, or in French "2011, année des Outre-mer", is almost halfway, but there are still some mayor events on the agenda.

The Year of Overseas Territories is a celebration of France and its diversity. The focus is on the "identities" of the twelve overseas departments and collectivities in all areas: culture, institutions, education, environment, economy, tourism, fine art, etc.

For more information about the French Overseas Territories and the upcoming events see
