Message from Dr. Jane: Marking the 21st Anniversary of Roots & Shoots

Here we are at the beginning of 2012 about to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Jane Goodall Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth program. Over the last two decades, Roots & Shoots has grown from just 12 high school students from nine different schools in Tanzania to a worldwide movement of young people who are dedicated to realizing a vision for a better world. I couldn’t be more proud of what they have accomplished.
