This past month, Jane has been traveling throughout Asia as part of the global Gombe 50 celebration. She hosted the Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots Asia Pacific Youth Summit on the campus of Hong Kong Polytechnic University, on August 30. Hundreds of Roots & Shoots members joined "Dr. Jane" as she spoke about the role we must all play to help people, animals and the environment we share. Roots & Shoots groups from Hong Kong, Nepal, Singapore, Australia, Beijing, Chengdu, India, Shanghai, Taiwan and Japan were in attendance.

Organized by the Jane Goodall Institute - Hong Kong, the summit served to bring together students from many backgrounds, united in service. Below are photos from the event. To learn more about Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots please visit our website.
