Who we are
In today's society the disconnect between people and nature seems to be clearer and bigger than ever. Connected Planet Foundation was set up to address this ever-growing disconnect. If we want people to protect the natural world then we need people to connect to it.
Our goal is to build that connection by providing a range of different experiences and opportunities that will not only connect people to the planet, but to each other. Happy people for a happy planet.
