Discover the village of Tiskmoudine
Tiskmoudine is a village in southern Morocco. It is home to the first regenerative hospitality project developed by 700,000 Hours and Regenopolis.
The people of Tizkmoudine, grouped together in an association, have decided to preserve their ancient village, abandoned half a century ago, and bring it back to life. To achieve this, the village association came up with the idea of a hospitality project, offering more than just a stopover, an experience of discovery, exchange and sharing between travellers and the local population.
This initiative complements the safeguarding of the village’s collective granary, which was initiated by the local authorities with the help of the Guardians of Memory association and an American NGO, the Global Heritage Fund.
700,000 hours offers travellers the chance to experience the daily life of a community, to discover its rich heritage, the breadth of its culture and the ancestral knowledge of its inhabitants.
700'000 Heures collaborates...
…. with the local community of the village of Tiskmoudine and the Global Heritage Fund.
Together they have initiated and are supporting six regeneration projects:

- The creation of a cooperative providing construction, carpentry and maintenance services for heritage restoration,
- The creation of socio-educational workshops for children,
- The implementation of new agroforestry projects, including subsistence farming and new sectors with high potential for economic development and soil regeneration,
- The implementation of a memory project, aimed at capturing, enhancing and passing on ancestral heritage and know-how, through research and interviews.
