Jane Attends JGI Global Meeting

Wednesday, January 6, 2010 - 2:20pm

The Jane Goodall Institute is a global organization, with operations in more than 20 countries worldwide. At the end of November, Jane traveled to Belgium to join the leaders of international JGIs to discuss priorities for the year ahead. 

Institute heads from France to Hong Kong and many places in between had a very productive discussion. Of particular importance was a brainstorming session about "Gombe 50" -- the half-century anniversary of Jane's first year at Gombe in 1960 -- and the spread of Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots youth service program, which is now in more than 114 countries.

The meeting was held on the peaceful grounds of the Chateau de Dalhem, which generously donated meeting space in its hostel. JGI-Netherlands and JGI-Belgium hosted the global meeting.

Representatives from JGIs around the globe met with Jane in November for a special meeting. What a great group picture!
