The perfect blend of global marketing expertise and environmental development expertise will support tourism and travel organizations attract the right traveler to a sustainable destination.
The direct connection between Connect Worldwide and Planet 4 People was created to address the growing need to responsibly develop and market destinations, ensuring the preservation of its natural and cultural heritage, historic richness, and well-being of its residents, while providing the best experience to travelers.

We must promote best practices in marketing, planning and management, with a focus on public, private and community partnership, to ensure that destinations are still there to enjoy for our grandchildren. It is my pleasure to partner with Planet 4 People to support destinations and travel companies worldwide”.
“Increasingly, people view travel as the opportunity to experience something unique, to engage with nature, history and people. Being able to create a destination that brings economic benefit, while preserving the uniqueness it holds for travelers is the key to success. We believe through an integrated approach of sustainable development and responsible marketing this can be accomplished” expressed Ernestina Rubio, President of P4P.
