Why Planet Happiness?
"Planet Happiness is a great initiative that reminds us the importance of smiling and reflecting upon who we are as tourists and travellers
as we explore the world around us
and help develop better understanding and compassion for each other"
Mario Hardy, CEO, PATA
"Striving to better understand and connect
in more meaningful ways
with people and cultures helps both
protect and preserve their ancestral heritage
whilst building pride in their communities.
It's this pride that grows happiness.
And it's happiness that builds strength and unity."
Chris Flynn, CEO
World Tourism Association for Culture & Heritage
“Engaging residents of World Heritage sites
in conversations about happiness and well-being
is a valuable way to move towards
a shared and sustainable stewardship of natural and historic sites.
This shared stewardship involves and connect host communities and visitors, thereby increasing happiness and sustainability.
Thanks to Planet Happiness for helping this to happen.”
