Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots Turns 20

Thursday, February 17, 2011 - 3:46pm

On February 19, 1991, Jane was at her home in Dar es Salaam, the capital of Tanzania, where she met for the first time with the first-ever members of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots. Tomorrow, February 19, 2011, 20 years later, Jane joins the entire Jane Goodall Institute community in celebrating and congratulating the positive impacts that members of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots have had over the last two decades.

The Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen—for our communities, for animals and for the environment. With hundreds of thousands of young people in more than 120 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects, youth-led campaigns and an interactive website, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe.
