El paisaje es un componente fundamental del patrimonio natural y cultural, que contribuye al bienestar de los seres humanos, a la consolidación de la identidad de las poblaciones y al desarrollo económico.

Por ello, el Cabildo Insular de Tenerife lleva años trabajando en la protección del paisaje de nuestra isla, particularmente valioso y frágil, a través de distintas líneas de actuación. Entre ellas, se encuentran la educación y la sensibilización, que constituyen herramientas fundamentales para lograr la implicación de todos los sectores sociales en el cuidado de nuestro territorio. En este marco surgió el proyecto Gestos por el Paisaje, cuyo objetivo principal era acercar a la ciudadanía el concepto de paisaje e incrementar la sensibilización respecto a su valor, su transformación y la implicación personal en su preservación.

Desde 2009 se ha implementado este proyecto a través de distintas actividades como charlas, una exposición informativa itinerante, distribución de folletos de recomendaciones, campañas de comunicación o rutas de interés paisajístico.
